Complying with the FFCRA as Employees Return to Work - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: The FFCRA will be in effect from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. It is uncertain whether the virus will resurge and whether schools and businesses will be able to stay open throughout the summer and fall. This webinar will give an overview of the FFCRA and its regulations and FAQs, exceptions to the FFCRA, the interplay between the FFCRA and company policies, the interaction between the FFCRA and other laws, and practical steps to help employers comply and avoid liability.


Every day since early March 2020 has brought new and overwhelming challenges for employers – layoffs, furloughs, employee illness, fear of community spread, and a torrent of new laws and regulations.  The pace has been difficult to manage.  

As states begin to reopen, employees of “non-essential” businesses are expected to return to work.  Those employees may have underlying health conditions making them more vulnerable to COVID-19.  They may be caring for a family member who tested positive.  They may be the sole child care provider for a child whose school or day care is still closed.  They may be afraid to come to work or to send their kids to camp.  Employers will need to understand the requirements of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) to be able to address each of those situations.  

The FFCRA will be in effect from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. It is uncertain whether the virus will resurge and whether schools and businesses will be able to stay open throughout the summer and fall.  This webinar will give an overview of the FFCRA and its regulations and FAQs, exceptions to the FFCRA, the interplay between the FFCRA and company policies, the interaction between the FFCRA and other laws, and practical steps to help employers comply and avoid liability.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will:

  • Gain a general understanding of the requirements of the FFCRA
  • Recognize situations where the FFCRA applies
  • Understand how to coordinate the different parts of the FFCRA with employer policies
  • Be aware of when intermittent leave is allowed, and the conditions of using intermittent leave
  • Have a plan about how to track leave under the FFCRA
  • Learn practical steps to help avoid liability
