The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA): What Employers Should Know

Friday 8:00am – 9:00am

Session Description

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take center stage, employers need to make sure they are familiar with the FFCRA and how to administer its paid leave requirements. This is especially true as the school year is upon us and employees will be asking to take FFCRA leave for childcare purposes. Employer law attorney Jim Spencer from Hinkle Law Firm LLC in Wichita will discuss a wide range of issues under the FFCRA, including eligibility, how pay for the paid leave is calculated, and when employees are entitled to take paid leave.


Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will gain an understanding on who is eligible for paid leave under the FFCRA and in what circumstances employers must provide FFCRA leave.
  2. Attendees will be instructed about recent guidance from the DOL regarding the FFCRA.
  3. Attendees will be instructed on when employees with childcare issues are permitted to use FFCRA leave.
