Families First Coronavirus Response Act- Leave

FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT (FFCRA)
 
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), Public Law 116-127, effective April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020, requires that certain employers provide eligible employees with paid leave due to specific circumstances related to COVID-19 through two separate provisions: 
Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA), Division E of FFCRA
Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA), Division C of FFCRA
 
The EPSLA allows eligible employees to request two (2) workweeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave for specific reasons. 
 
The EFMLEA allows eligible employees to request up to twelve (12) weeks of expanded family and medical leave so that the employee can care for his or her son or daughter whose school or place of care is closed, or whose childcare provider is unavailable, due to COVID-19 related reasons.  The first two (2) weeks of this leave are unpaid, with the remaining ten (10) weeks paid.
