The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19, effective April 1, 2020. The FFCRA requires employers with fewer than 500 employees to provide paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply from the effective date through December 31, 2020.
In addition, guidance from the national, state, county, and city levels is being released at an unprecedented pace, making it nearly impossible for employers to keep track of new orders and regulations. In this critical time, it is extremely important for employers and managers to have the most up-to-date information. By learning important information released by government entities, employers can keep themselves and employees safe.
All employers need to take steps to reduce the impact of a pandemic outbreak in the workplace. Due to growing concerns about COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recently issued new guidance to American employers about how to prevent and control infections from spreading.
