    Federal Leaves and Cares Act (covid updates) - Megan Balne, Esq. Megan Knowlton Balne

    Paid Sick Leave and Emergency FMLA leave under the CARES Act was not extended and expired on December 31, 2020.  Employers, however, can continue to provide leave on a voluntary basis.  This presentation will discuss strategies for employers to navigate the expiration of FFCRA leave and best practices on how to implement the leave on a voluntary basis.

    • Review of FFCRA Leave
    • Discussion of continuing obligation of employers to isolate sick employees under OSHA
    • Strategies for filling the gap left by the FFCRA
    • Considerations in determining whether to voluntarily continue FFCRA leave
