The Latest Guidance on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and Paid Leave (and Some Common Questions)

Over the last month, since the passage of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”), the U. S. Department of Labor (“DOL”) has issued several forms of guidance for implementing the Act’s grant of 1) two weeks of “emergency paid sick leave” for certain COVID-19 related qualifying conditions, and 2) up to 12 weeks of “expanded family and medical leave” for employees who are unable to work because they must provide care for a child under 18 whose school or day care has closed because of COVID-19.   In this latest post, we discuss where we stand on some commonly asked issues regarding the FFCRA’s leave provisions in light of the DOL’s evolving guidance, which may be of interest to public and private educational institutions.
