The Families First Coronavirus Response Act Goes into Effect Today

In an effort to provide eligible employees paid family and medical leave and paid sick leave in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently passed The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the Act). The Act provides eligible employees with emergency paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19, such as medical care for themselves, medical care for others, and care for children whose school or daycare is closed due to COVID-19 related reasons. These benefits are available beginning April 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020. The new law creates two new emergency leave benefits for eligible employees: (1) emergency paid family and medical leave and (2) emergency paid sick leave.

 

You may qualify for these benefits and receive benefits up to 14 weeks depending on your circumstances.  Read the act below.
