What Is FFCRA?

Here is a short video about the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

FFCRA Employer Requirements

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires “certain public employers and private employers with fewer than 500 employees to provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. Each covered employer must post in a conspicuous place on its premises a notice of FFCRA requirements. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020.”
