Chief among the challenges Companies are facing is the implementation of new legal requirements for employers during this challenging time. On March 20, 2020, Congress passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Contained within the FFCRA are two sections dealing with employee leave rights. Each has its own name, the Emergency Family Medical Leave Expansion Act (“EFMLEA”) and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (“EPSLA”). The current bill is only a temporary relief measure and both the expanded Family and Medical Leave and the Paid Sick Pay Provisions expire on December 31, 2020.
Additionally, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. CARES include one-time payments to individuals, strengthens unemployment insurance, and provides additional health care funding, as well as loans and grants to businesses to deter layoffs.
It's imperative that employers are well-versed in the provisions of these new pieces of legislation. This webinar will provide participants with the information necessary to be in compliance.
In a rare show of bipartisanship, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was signed into law on March 18, 2020. This legislation provides a wide scope of benefits and rights to individuals impacted by the COVID-19 national emergency.
This legislation makes sweeping changes to an employer’s legal obligations:
Imposing a general paid sick and safe leave mandate on all employers with fewer than 500 employees, with additional time for public health emergencies;
Temporarily and vastly expanding coverage and imposing a paid leave requirement under the Family and Medical Leave Act for reasons associated with COVID-19 on most employers with fewer than 500 employees;
Making unemployment benefits available for reasons associated with COVID-19; and
Giving a tax credit for paid sick and paid family and medical leave
