DOL Publishes FAQs On Families First Coronavirus Response Act

By Kamer Zucker Abbott

March 25, 2020

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has published answers to some of our questions on applying the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which requires public health emergency FMLA leave for certain employees and paid sick time for COVID-19 related reasons for many employees.

We encourage all employers to review this publication. It offers guidance on determining whether these new laws apply to you and how you should apply them in your workplaces. The DOL states that it “will continue to provide compliance assistance to employers and employees on their responsibilities and rights under the FFCRA” and will be issuing implementing regulations. We will keep you posted as further clarifications surface. In the meantime, if you have questions or need assistance, please contact a KZA attorney.
