FFCRA Paid Sick Leave and Expanded Family Medical Leave
Effective April 1st, 2020 through December 31st, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires businesses with fewer than 500 employees to provide paid sick leave or expanded family medical leave for specific situations related to COVID-19.
Employers are reimbursed through tax credits for employee wages and for health premiums to maintain employee coverage during qualifying leave.
Covered employers must post a notice of employee rights in the workplace or email the notice to employees who are working remotely.
