The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA/HR 6201) outlines that certain employers provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.
For COVID-19 related reasons, employees receive up to 80 hours of Paid Sick Leave and expanded childcare leave when employee’s children’s schools are closed, or childcare providers are unavailable. When paying employees with this Leave, it is important and recommended NOT to include any regular hours or overtime type of pay. If partial regular hours need to be computed and paid in addition to this type of pay, the employee will ideally receive two separate paychecks.
