MSF Client Alert: Federal Response to COVID-19: Paid Sick Leave and Family and Medical Leave Expansion

On March 18, 2020, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the “Law”) was signed into law. The Law, which goes into effect on April 2, 2020, requires certain employers to provide paid sick leave benefits and increased Family and Medical Leave Act benefits to employees affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Law also provides tax credits to certain employers who are required to provide paid sick leave under the Law. In its current form, the provisions of the Law will terminate on December 31, 2020 and no carryover of benefits will be permitted.
