This unprecedented federal law became effective on April 1, 2020 to help employees and their families deal with Covid-related absences. The FFCRA is now in full force and employers are doing their best to navigate its complexities.
This law is becoming increasingly relevant due to further school closures and a spike in positive cases. Employers are continuing to ask questions as they work through the nuances of this law. During the Webinar, we will discuss:
The two main provisions under the law - the Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and the Expanded Family & Medical Leave (EFML) - and who is eligible to take job-protected, paid leave.
The six qualifying events under the EPSL that triggers an employer's obligation to pay employees up to two weeks (or 80 hours) of leave for Covid-related issues.
The one qualifying event under the EFML that permits employees to take time off up to 12 weeks for school closures or unavailable daycare.
What employers need to prepare for this fall when employee-parents are unable to work or telework due to school closings.
The recent court case that struck down and reinterpreted certain FFCRA regulations.
We will reserve time at the end to answer questions.
Hope you can join us!
