In addition to the changes to business strategies, operations, loan servicing guidelines, staffing models, and service delivery methods, you must also prepare for big changes in employee leave practices! On March 18, 2020, President Trump signed into law H.R. 6201, known as the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the Act), in response to the COVID-19 crisis. It provides for employer-paid leave to employees from April 2, 2020, through the end of the year. The Act creates two distinct types of employee leave rights: emergency paid sick leave and public health emergency leave. You must understand the coverage details and eligibility requirements of both. The coverage afforded to employees could include up to 12 weeks of paid leave – in addition to any required paid sick, family, or medical leave under your state law.
The world is moving incredibly fast, and you need to stay ahead of the employment law compliance curve. Join us to learn the requirements for emergency paid sick leave and new family and medical leave provisions of the Act.
