The legal team (thank you, Allison) has some new updates to share with you. See below:
The DOL has released new guidance in the form of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the FFCRA. This guidance answers the three (3) main questions we have received from clients:
- Can FFCRA leave be taken intermittently? – Yes. See questions 20-22.
- What documentation is required for the employee to take leave? See questions 15-16.
- Can an employee use PTO to supplement the 2/3 of your normal earnings from paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave under the FFCRA to get the additional 1/3 of your normal earnings in order to receive full normal earnings? If the employer and employee both agree. See questions 31-33.
