As our community’s response to COVID-19 evolves, so do the questions related to providing leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Join Terence Trotter and Min Kirk from the U.S. Department of Labor as they address your trending FFCRA questions, including:
- Is an employee eligible for FFCRA leave when the child’s school mandates blended in-person and distance learning?
- If an employee has the option of selecting the child’s learning method (e.g., fully in person, fully distance, or a blended approach) and the employee chooses the full distance learning option, will the employee be eligible for FFCRA leave?
- If an employee chooses to travel outside of Hawaii and is then subject to mandatory 14-day quarantine, is the employee entitled to FFCRA leave?
- What documentation should an employee provide to support the need for FFCRA leave?
After a brief overview of the FFCRA, the speakers will address participants’ questions about the application of the FFCRA especially as it relates to back-to-school issues and the 14-day quarantine after travel outside of the state. Registrants of the webinar are encouraged to submit their FFCRA questions in advance of the webinar to Sheri-Ann Lau Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org. This event will not be recorded.
