The Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor today issued a series of corrections to the previously published rules for implementing and governing the FFCRA. They can be found HERE.
While a large portion of the changes are structural only, one change of importance is the removal of Section 826.70 (f) which as previously written would have prevented an employer from requiring the use of any accrued leave to be used during the 10-week paid period of EFMLA.
The Goodman McGuffey Employment team will continue to keep everyone updated on the changes in application of the various COVID-19 laws including Cares and FFCRA. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, which can be done by filling out the contact us form located under the Contact tab on our website. If your inquiry is urgent, please contact any of our offices directly.
Stay well and stay safe!
