Employer Obligations and Options when COVID-19 Impacts Employee Childcare

Live Webinar: Monday, August 17, 2020

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: You’ll learn your legal obligations when employees have childcare issues because due to COVID-19 as well as best practices for helping those employees and minimizing workplace disruption.



The United States has been dealing with the impact of a pandemic for several months. To aid employees, in an unprecedented move, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act was enacted, and many employees became eligible for paid leave. Around the same time, non-essential businesses in many states were ordered to close.  Now things are starting to reopen and getting employees who do not have childcare to report to work can be difficult. It’s likely to get even more difficult when school starts for parents whose children are attending online or on a staggered schedule.  Do you know what your obligations are?

Even if you don’t have a legal responsibility to provide leave or an accommodation, how you treat employees now can have long lasting effects on employee morale and loyalty as well as your company’s reputation.

Come learn about your obligations under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, other state and local laws, and other options to consider that will allow you to support employees while minimizing business disruptions.

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

  • Understand the leave provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response At (FFCRA)
  • Gain knowledge of the documentation required from employees requesting FFCRA leave
  • Gain knowledge of the tax credits available for FFCRA leave
  • Know when to check for applicable state laws providing leave for employees
  • How to evaluate whether an employee is entitled to Family and Medical Leave Act Leave
  • Identify options that help support employees and minimizes business disruption even when there is no legal obligation.
