The U.S. Department of Labor
has addressed the impact of the new stimulus bill
on the paid leave requirements of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) by adding two Frequently Asked Questions to its FFCRA FAQs
. You can find each new FAQ by looking for those marked as “added 12/31/20.”
The DOL affirms that employers are not required to provide FFCRA paid leave in 2021, but may voluntarily do so. The DOL also explains that it will continue to enforce FFCRA violations that occurred between April 1 and December 31, 2020 and discusses the statute of limitations for such claims.
If you have questions about paid leave, please contact a KZA attorney.
