The Department of Labor (DOL) has begun investigating how employers are administering Emergency Paid Sick Leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Already there are employers in California and Arizona who owe employees back wages for denying qualified paid leave.
As of April 17, 2020, these violations will fall under the Fair Labor Standard Act, which could cost employers more than just back wages.
If you have additional questions or want to offload leave administration to our experienced professionals, we are here to help! Our HR compliance team is continuously monitoring and keeping current with the complexities of leave administration and the requirements of the FFCRA.
