The school year has ended or is winding down and workplaces are beginning to reopen, but the coronavirus continues to circulate, which means employers will continue to encounter situations in which employees may be eligible for paid sick Leave and/or expanded family medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). It’s important for covered businesses to be mindful of these obligations, as the Department of Labor has already pursued numerous successful enforcement actions against employers who failed to provide leave to eligible employees. Our Employment Group stands ready to assist with FFCRA leave requirements, review of return to work plans, and other COVID-related workplace issues.
