As a produce salesperson or manager in accounting for your company, I can appreciate the many daily challenges you face that tug and pull for your priority and attention. With that said, the very last thing you want to deal with is payment term inconsistencies within your sales documentation that may put your company in harm’s way while securing every dollar that is owed to you on successful sales transactions.

On March 10th,  the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that it is postponing most foreign inspections through April, effective immediately. Inspections deemed mission-critical will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The agency reached this decision as a result of travel advisories involving U.S. Government employees as well as restrictions imposed on foreign visitors by certain countries.

Employers are responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak in a variety of ways. There is no one correct way to respond, and there is no one-size-fits-all policy that must be implemented. However, there is no doubt that given the rapid spread of the outbreak in the United States and globally, employers must now take steps to help keep their employees safe.
