Littler: DOL Releases Q&A Guidance on Families First Coronavirus Response Act

On March 24, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor released an initial set of questions and answers (Q&As) concerning the recently enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The Q&As focus on the law’s provisions relating to new emergency paid sick leave (EPSL) and emergency paid Family and Medical Leave Act benefits (FMLA+). As it continues to accept feedback regarding the FFCRA, the DOL may release additional Q&As on more issues, or clarify issues in the existing guidance, before the law takes effect on April 1, 2020. LEARN MORE
