What is FFCRA, Families First Coronavirus Response Act?

Just a few days ago, the House passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and then changed it to make the Senate happy. The Senate passed the revised version without changes.

President Trump signed this $100 billion bill on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020 and goes into effect in 15 days from then (April 2nd, 2020).

That’s not a lot of time for your business to prepare.

The FFCRA amends the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) by adding a new section 110 entitled “Public Health Emergency Leave“.

In sum the amendment provides for two weeks of fully paid Emergency Paid Sick Leave and up to 12 weeks of partially paid Emergency Medical Family Leave to employees that have been employed for at least 30 days by a company with less than 500 employees.
