AM&F Client Alert - Two Items Employers Need to Know Now

Two Items Employers Need to Know Now:

(1) Paid sick leave and expanded FMLA leave requirements for COVID-19 related reasons ended 12/31/20, and

(2) Paycheck Protection Program loan updates, plus a new PPP loan is available for small/medium employers

  1. Required Paid Leave Under the FFCRA Ended On 12/31/20
  • Paid leave, including emergency paid sick leave (up to 80 hours) and expanded family and medical leave (up to 12 weeks), under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was originally set to expire by its terms on December 31, 2020. 
  • Congress did not extend employees’ entitlement to FFCRA leave beyond December 31, 2020 in the new stimulus package.
  • Congress did extend the employer tax credits for paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave voluntarily provided to employees between January 1 and March 31, 2021 in The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021.
  • Employers are therefore not required to provide employees with paid leave under the FFCRA for COVID-19 related reasons after December 31, 2020, but may voluntarily decide to provide such leave.
