Department of Labor Issues FFCRA Regulations

Families First Coronavirus Response Act Summary
On March 18, 2020, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which makes broad temporary changes to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and requires employers to provide emergency paid leave to employees affected by COVID‑19, or Coronavirus. Last week, the Department of Labor released its FFCRA-accompanying regulations, which provide additional explanation and clarification of the statutory text.

In light of these new regulations, Lloyd Gosselink’s Employment Law Practice Group has prepared a comprehensive summary document outlining the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA) and Expanded Family Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA) and incorporating answers to common client questions we have received since the FFCRA’s passage.  

This summary was prepared by Lloyd Gosselink’s Employment Law Practice Group: Sheila Gladstone, Sarah Glaser, and Emily Linn. If you would like more information, please contact Sheila or 512.970.5815), Sarah or 512.221.6585), or Emily ( or 214.755.9433).
