Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)
U.S. Department of Labor’s Paid Leave Virtual Town Hall
Friday, March 20, 2020
The United States Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division needs your input as it urgently develops implementing regulations and guidance supporting the FFCRA and explaining its new requirements.
The FFCRA signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on March 18, requires certain employers to provide employees with paid sick or family leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.
Under the new law employees of covered employers will receive two weeks of paid sick time at regular rate of pay while under quarantine, self-quarantine or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If an employee is caring for someone subject to quarantine or self-quarantine or caring for a child due to school and childcare provider closures, they’ll be eligible for two weeks of paid sick time at two-thirds rate of pay.
