The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) provides for two new types of leave for governmental employers and private employers with fewer than 500 employees: Emergency Family and Medical Leave and Emergency Paid Sick Leave. The leave provisions of the FFCRA are effective from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
On March 27, 2020, DOL issued guidance on those leave provisions. The guidance, which includes fact sheets for employees and employers, as well as an extensive set of answers to frequently asked questions, addresses several key implementation issues.
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act), signed on March 27, 2020, made minor clarifying amendments to the leave provisions of the FFCRA.
On all issues involving the interpretation or application of laws and regulations, plan sponsors should rely on their legal counsel for legal advice.
