Temporary Rule: Paid Leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act 

Please join the DOL Wage and Hour Division to learn more about the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor announced new action regarding how American workers and employers will benefit from the protections and relief offered by the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act, both part of the FFCRA.

FFCRA will help the United States combat and defeat COVID-19 by reimbursing American private employers that have fewer than 500 employees with tax credits for the cost of providing employees with paid leave taken for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The legislation will ensure that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus, while at the same time reimbursing businesses.


Topics will include:

  • Who is eligible for leave?

  • What businesses are covered under FFCRA?

  • What are the entitlements under FFCRA?

  • What requirements are there to request leave?

  • How does the FFCRA work with FMLA entitlements?
