Considered ‘Essential,’ Onyx GS Continues to Serve Government During Coronavirus Pandemic
Onyx’ IT mission deemed critical to maintaining continuity of operations in the federal public sector
CENTREVILLE, VA – April 1, 2020—Onyx Government Services, empowering the U.S. Federal government and Department of Defense (DoD) to interpret, manage, and protect mission-critical systems and data, will provide uninterrupted support to the government during the Coronavirus crisis. Onyx GS is considered an “essential business” in the performance of the government during this challenging time.
The White House has issued guidance on dealing with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Work in support of the critical infrastructure of the United States — including work performed by government contractors — should continue in the interest of national security.
“During this difficult period in our nation’s history, the American people have the sincere commitment of Onyx to stay the course on our critically important work,” said Ken Jensen, Founder & President of Onyx Government Services. “We know how vital it is to keep the government running smoothly. We will vigilantly continue to support the Treasury Department and all our other contracts with a temporary telework program that will offer healthcare safety to our employees while still getting the job done.”
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The provisions apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
“We are committed to follow all FFCRA guidelines and be supportive and protect our staff,” said Jensen. “All Americans must pull together to defeat this deadly virus. I know our employees recognize the importance of keeping the Federal government working efficiently. We won’t abandon our post.”
