[Note to Readers:   This blog post and the link to our Alert updates our March 16 “Working Together” blog post and provides updated information related to the March 18 “Families First Coronavirus Response Act.”)

On March 18, 2020 the Senate passed and the President signed the “Families First Coronavirus Response Act.” The Act, originally the product of lengthy negotiations between House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, was passed by the House on March 14, revised by that body on March 16, and then passed the Senate without further modification.  It will take effect on April 1.  We have summarized what two of its provisions – the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act, and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act – will mean for employers in an alert that can be accessed here.

Additional information on employer responses to COVID-19 may also be found on a dedicated FOCUS page on the Pullman & Comley website.
