On March 18, President Trump signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201). The law is set to take effect no later than April 2 and will continue to December 31, 2020, establishing paid sick leave and temporarily expanding the existing federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Our webinar will continue to evolve to include the most up to date information possible, including the DOL issued guidance.
