Employment Law Update: New DOL Guidance on the FFCRA

Employment Law Update: New DOL Guidance on the FFCRA
March 27, 2020 dmock2015

While we await the implementing regulations for the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) continues to provide guidance on the Emergency Paid Sick Leave and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Acts. Employers should regularly check the Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Questions and Answers for updates to the DOL’s guidance on the FFCRA, including:

  • Documentation required to support Emergency Paid Sick Leave and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion requests to obtain tax credits;
  • Intermittent leave;
  • Effect of worksite closures or reduced hours on Emergency Paid Sick Leave and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion;
  • Effect of telework availability on Emergency Paid Sick Leave and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion;
  • Integration with employer paid leave benefits and unemployment insurance.

While this guidance is not yet in the form of formal regulations, it provides insight into how the DOL is currently interpreting the FFCRA.

If you have any questions regarding the FFCRA, please contact one of the employment attorneys at Delfino Madden.
