New COVID-19 Federal Paid Leave Acts Start 4/1/20 – What Employers Need to Know

Earlier this month, Congress passed legislation that imposes paid leave requirements related to the COVID-19 crisis on small and medium sized employers. The Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act and Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act were part of a legislative package aimed at providing a limited financial safety net for workers affected by COVID-19 crisis. Set to take effect on April 1, 2020, the new laws have left employers straining to ensure that they can handle the administrative and financial burdens imposed by them.

Leading up to April 1, it will be imperative for employers to adapt their policies and procedures for administering leave so they can comply with these new laws without disrupting their own business operations.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The nuts and bolts of the two new federal paid leave laws
  • The common issues that arise for an employer in determining whether an employee is entitled to paid leave under these laws
  • How the federal paid leave laws work in relationship to each other and an employer’s existing PTO policies
  • How to take advantage of the tax credits associated with the paid leave
