Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or ACT)

These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020


The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

► PAID LEAVE ENTITLEMENTS Generally, employers covered under the Act must provide employees: Up to two weeks (80 hours, or a part-time employee’s two-week equivalent) of paid sick leave based on the higher of their regular rate of pay, or the applicable state or Federal minimum wage, paid at:

• 100% for qualifying reasons #1-3 below, up to $511 daily and $5,110 total;

• 2/3 for qualifying reasons #4 and 6 below, up to $200 daily and $2,000 total; and

• Up to 12 weeks of expanded family and medical leave paid at 2/3 for qualifying reason #5 below for up to $200 daily and $12,000 total. A part-time employee is eligible for leave for the number of hours that the employee is normally scheduled to work over that period. (Please note: This is not an additional FMLA bank; first two weeks are unpaid, but can be supplemented with other paid leave, including the 80 hours of paid sick leave granted by the Act.)

► ELIGIBLE EMPLOYEES District employees are eligible for up to two weeks of fully or partially paid sick leave for COVID-19 related reasons (see below).”

► QUALIFYING REASONS FOR LEAVE RELATED TO COVID-19 An employee is entitled to take leave related to COVID-19 if the employee is unable to work, including unable to telework, because the employee:

1. is subject to a Federal, State, or local quarantine or isolation order related to COVID-19;

2. has been advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine related to COVID-19;

3. is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and is seeking a medical diagnosis;

4. is caring for an individual subject to an order described in (1) or self-quarantine as described in (2);

5. is caring for his or her child whose school or place of care is closed (or child care provider is unavailable) due to COVID-19 related reasons; or

6. is experiencing any other substantially-similar condition specified by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
