Families First Coronavirus Response Act Updated Resources

November 2020

Since April 1, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) has required covered employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for certain specified reasons related to COVID-19. On August 3, however, a New York federal judge issued a decision finding four FFCRA provisions invalid. In response, on September 11, the U.S. Department of Labor posted revisions to regulations that implemented the FFCRA’s paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave provisions. The revisions became effective on September 16.

Based on these revisions, Hawaii Employers Council has updated several of its FFCRA resources:

The FFCRA is scheduled to end on December 31, 2020. It is likely, however, that COVID-19 will be with us into 2021. It is therefore very possible that the FFCRA will get extended, and potentially expanded.
