USDOL Revises FFCRA Rules for Emergency PSL and FMLA

September 14, 2020 – The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) has revised its Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) rules regarding emergency paid sick leave (EPSL) and emergency family and medical leave (EFMLA) leave following an August 2020 federal court decision that invalidated portions of the regulations. The revision to the rule is scheduled to be published and take effect on September 16, 2020. The revisions:

December 27, 2020: The stimulus bill passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law on December 27, 2020, gave employers the option to extend EPSL and EFMLA through March 31, 2021. 

March 11, 2021: The relief bill (ARPA) signed into law on March 11, 2021, gave employers a new 10-day bank of EPSL available for use starting April 1, 2021 through September 30, 2021.
