On March 18, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) that expands FMLA rights, including 10 weeks of paid FMLA leave and also provides eligible employees with up to 80 hours of paid sick leave who are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees’ entitlement to expanded FMLA rights and paid sick leave goes into effect on April 2, 2020, and applies to all employers employing fewer than 500 employees. This means that even small employers, those with fewer than 50 employees, who never had to comply with the FMLA will now be required to provide expanded FMLA leave entitlement as well as paid sick leave to their eligible employees.

Join the employment law team from the law firm of O’Neil, Cannon, Hollman, DeJong & Laing S.C. as they discuss what businesses need to know about the newly expanded employment rights for employees impacted by COVID-19.

The presentation will discuss:

  • HR Policies that Address the Impact of COVID-19 in the Workplace
  • Compliance Issues for the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Compliance Issues for Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act
  • Potential Errors Employers Can Make in Group Health Plan Administration Relative to Expanded FMLA Rights
  • Key Provisions in the CARES Act to Increase Access to 401(k) Plan Loans and Hardship Distributions
  • Tax Credits for Providing Expanded FMLA Paid Leave or Emergency Paid Sick Leave
