Understanding the New Paid Time Off Requirements During the Covid-19 Pandemic
President Trump signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act into law, and it is slated to take effect on Thursday, April 2nd. The new provisions contain federal workplace regulatory initiatives, ranging from paid leave entitlements for employees impacted by the Coronavirus to Family and Medical Leave Act protections to care for children during school closings. All businesses with 500 or fewer employees will be directly impacted. These rules are brand new and can be particularly confusing for smaller business operators.
To help explain the new rules and what they mean for your business, we have two national employment law experts from noted labor law firm Fisher Phillips. Steven Bernstein, Regional Managing Partner in their Tampa office and Benjamin Ebbink, Partner in their Sacramento office will walk us through the practical and legal ramifications of these provisions, and answer questions on how to properly implement it at your business to access available tax credits.

After this webinar was conducted, the Department of Labor set the effective date of these provisions as April 1, 2020, a day earlier than expected. This presentation references the previously expected effective date of April 2, 2020.
