Summary of FMLA and Sick Leave Provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

Franczek P.C.

On March 14, 2020, the U.S. House of Representatives passed HR6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act in response to the ongoing coronavirus emergency. HR6201 includes two new laws relating to employee leave from work: the Emergency Family and Medical Expansion Act, which expands FMLA coverage, and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act, which provides up to 80 hours of paid sick leave for individuals affected by coronavirus. The combined effect of these laws is to provide many (but by no means all) employees with up to 12 weeks of fully or partially-paid leave for reasons related to the coronavirus pandemic. While the Senate must still pass the bill before it is sent to President Trump for signature, we’ve provided the key provisions of the Acts below. If enacted, which we anticipate it will be, the Acts will take effect 15 days after signature and will expire on December 31, 2020.
