COVID-19 and Leave: Next Steps for Employers

Live Webinar: Thursday, March 25, 2021

1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT:  Since Congress failed to extend the FFCRA’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act provisions into the new year, what should employers do when employees or their family members are sick and still need leave due to COVID-19? Join this webinar to uncover the best strategies for your business going forward in 2021!



The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) became federal law on April 1, 2020. Yet unlike many other federal employment laws, the FFCRA contained an end date of December 31, 2020 and has already expired. So, what are employers supposed to do now? Since Congress failed to extend the FFCRA’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act provisions into the new year, what should employers do when employees or their family members are sick and still need leave due to COVID-19?

In light of the continuing COVID-19 crisis, employers may need to consider whether to continue providing paid time off to sick employees or those seeking testing or who are caring for other family members. Additionally, employers need to remember employees are still entitled to unpaid traditional Family and Medical Leave Act leave if they are sick with COVID-19 or are caring for a covered family member with a serious health condition. This webinar will walk employers through their options for providing leave during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and will also look at how employers can remain compliant with pre-existing leave laws in 2021.


At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand legal obligations now that FFCRA has expired

  • Analyze available options for COVID-19-related leave

  • Plan for future COVID-19-related leave requests from employees
