DOL Issues Rules for FFCRA Coronavirus-Related Paid Leaves

By: Nikole L. Canute

On April 1, 2020, the Department of Labor issued temporary rules addressing implementation of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).  The rules, effective from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, address several aspects of the FFCRA-created paid federal leaves, including documenting the need for qualifying leaves, interaction between the two paid leaves created by the FFCRA, and the potential exemption of small employers (under 50 employees) from certain paid leaves.  The DOL’s rules can be found at the following link: https://www.dol.gov/sites/dolgov/files/WHD/Pandemic/FFCRA.pdf.   If you have questions regarding the federal paid leaves, Nikole Canute (/ (616) 632-8049), Nate Wolf
(/(616) 632-8046), and Scott Dwyer (/(616) 632-8033) are available to assist.
