Highlights of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which is an economic stimulus plan to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, was signed into law on March 18, 2020.  This new law will take effect in 15 days, or on April 2, 2020.  While the law contains a range of provisions affecting government benefit programs and COVID-19 testing, the focus of this summary is on those provisions directly applicable to employers.  As described more fully in our summary, the FFCRA contains provisions requiring protected and partially-paid leave for employees forced to miss work when their child’s school is closed due to the outbreak, as well as provisions creating a right to emergency paid sick leave for certain absences related to the outbreak.
