The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which took effect April 1, requires covered employers to provide eligible employees with temporary job-protected paid sick leave and paid expanded family and medical leave due to certain qualifying reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The FFCRA has a sunset date of December 31, 2020.
In the absence of a law extending the FFCRA's provisions, employers need to be proactive and prepare for the sunset of the FFCRA. The better prepared the employer is, the better it can help manage employee's expectations. In this episode HR expert Jenni Stone shares measures employers can take in advance of the FFCRA's expiration.
