WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with the newly enacted federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

President Trump has signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) into law. Affected employers must be prepared to implement the FFCRA’s leave programs on or before April 1, 2020. The FFCRA includes emergency paid family and medical and sick leave provisions that will remain in effect through December 31, 2020.

There are many questions employers need answered right now ahead of this law going into effect.

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorneys Nita Beecher and Burt Fishman of Fortney Scott who will will provide legal insight into eligibility, the amount of pay to which workers are entitled, job restoration and more.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Determine if your organization is a “covered employer” under the FFCRA
  • Understand how the Department of Labor is likely to calculate the 500-employee threshold
  • Determine which employees are eligible for emergency paid family or sick leave due to COVID-19
  • Recognize whether an employee meets the definition of having a “qualifying need” for family or sick leave—and how much leave they’re entitled to
  • Identify the conditions under which employees may be entitled to leave according to the provisions of the FFCRA’s Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Calculate what segment of the leave must be paid and what happens with the first 10 days of leave
  • Comply with job restoration requirements under this newly enacted law
  • Take advantage of the grace period on compliance and applicable tax credits to offset costs
