The Families First Coronavirus Response Act - Supplemental Guidance
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the “FFCRA”) became effective Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Please refer to our initial posting on March 20, 2020. Please see our Supplemental Guidance covering the most recent critical changes to the FFCRA contained in the U.S. Department of Labor’s published temporary regulations, including:
- Definition of “Quarantine or Isolation Order” to determine who is eligible for Emergency Paid Sick Leave
- Limitation of Emergency Paid Family Leave to care for a child whose school is closed, where there is no other “suitable person” available
- Six month average calculation to determine “Regular Rate of Pay” for purposes of Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Paid Family Leave
- Parameters of the Small Business Exemption
We will continue to closely track the new developments related to the FFCRA. We are here to help. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions.
