DOL Publishes Regulations Clarifying FFCRA

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released new regulations on April 1, 2020, in an attempt to clarify certain provisions in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

Specifically, the new regulations address the requirements imposed by the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSL) included in the FFCRA that some public and private employers must provide up to 80 hours of paid sick leave if an employee is unable to work or telework.

This legal alert from Squire Patton Boggs breaks down the new regulations, touching on employer questions such as when an employee is eligible to use EPSL, what constitutes advice of a health care provider, when an employee qualifies for EPSL when caring for another person, and more.
