Schools Are Opening! How Does it Impact the FFCRA Emergency Paid Leave! How Does the Department of Labor (DOL) Clarify the Confusion?

With kids going back to school, new questions regarding eligibility for paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) are cropping up. Many employees are confused about the way forward on how they can still be eligible for the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA) as they struggle with COVID-19 decisions.

The FFCRA, which remains in effect until December 31, 2020, requires employers to provide all employees with two weeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave for one of the specified reasons related to COVID-19. Relevant here is that the employee is entitled to two weeks of paid sick leave at two-thirds the regular rate of pay when the employee is unable to work due to a bona fide need to care for a child (under 18 years of age) whose school or child care provider is closed or unavailable for reasons related to COVID-19. However, employees may take up to two weeks of paid sick leave for any combination of qualifying reasons, so tracking leave and the reason(s) for the same is key.

In the spring, questions regarding the need to stay home with kids whose schools were closed were clearer because, for the most part, schools were either closed or operating remotely. Things this fall are a bit more complicated with staggered school schedules, options for students to attend in person or to participate remotely, and continuing uncertainty about reopening or staying open for in-person attendance.

Areas will be covered during the Session:-

  • How has the FFCRA assess their regulations with schools opening
  • What are the consequences for employers as they try to mitigate employee coverage?
  • What is the impact on the workforce when employees are no longer eligible for FFCRA?
  • What are the options for employees who partially are eligible for FFCRA?
  • How does DOL help employees and employers mitigate the new change?
  • What are the best resources to feel confident about returning to work safely?
  • What are the ways Employers can provide support for those employees impacted by the FFCRA?
  • What is the most effective way to ensure confidence in returning to work based on the EEOC Pandemic Guidance, OSHA Guidance, and the CDC Guidelines?
