The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) gave American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide employees with paid leave (effective between April 1 and Dec. 31, 2020). The three major components of the bill that affected businesses of all sizes include paid sick leave, paid family and medical leave, and new tax credits.
The Department of Labor (DOL) is providing compliance assistance and technical assistance related to the paid leave requirements established in the FFCRA. If your question is not addressed by the DOL guidance, you can call 866-487-9243 (or 866-4USWAGE) to be connected to your local Wage and Hour Division (WHD) office.
