A: I'm very sorry for your difficult situation, especially since it seems to have resulted from your being kind and thoughtful of your employees. You could consult with attorneys to investigate whether there is anything they might be able to do - but that could further add to your expenses - it might be more economical to first explore on your own if there is anything further needed by the relief agencies in their review processes, or if other state resources are available. If this does not pan out with meaningful results, you could reach out to bankruptcy attorneys to discuss whether that process could offer damage control and protect you from further financial losses. Good luck
