Pitfalls for Employers to Avoid when Reopening or Returning Workers to the Office During COVID-19
The ‘Families First Coronavirus Response Act’ (“FFCRA”) was signed into law on March 18, 2020 to respond to and help mitigate the tremendous economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Two portions of the FFCRA that have provided economic relief to Americans that are unable to work (or telework) for ‘qualifying reasons’ related to COVID-19 are ‘The Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act’ (‘EPSL’”) and ‘The Expanded Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act’ (‘EFMLEA’). The FFCRA enables employers to provide their employees with paid leave under both of these provisions, and the employer is reimbursed, dollar-for-dollar, with refundable tax credits.
To carry out the purposes of the FFCRA, the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor issued a Temporary Rule on April 1, 2020. On September 11, 2020, the DOL issued revisions and clarifications to the April 1st Temporary Rule. Understanding the provisions of the FFCRA, the regulations currently in place, and the revisions and clarifications to the April 1st Temporary Rule is critical for employers.
In their exclusive LISI Webinar, Colleen Flynn and ALan Gassman will review: (a) the emerging guidance for employers on COVID-19, (b) how employers can avoid retaliation claims when returning employees to the office during the pandemic, (c) some of the Revised Rule issued by the DOL effective September 16, 2020 which revises a portion of the Temporary Rule announced April 1, 2020, (d) emerging guidance from the DOL on leave laws, and (e) some of the emerging/changing information from the CDC and OSHA.
