Families First Coronavirus Response Act

Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)

Effective: April 1, 2020

You may have heard that a new Paid Sick Time and FMLA Expansion Law called The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (the “Act”) passed recently.

This Act is important and most likely relevant to you as it includes two significant sections that will have a direct effect on all businesses with less than 500 employees. Please contact us if you need help administering these for your employees.

There are two main components of the FFCRA:

  1. Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL)
  2. Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA)

See these links from the Department of Labor for More Information:


Employer Posting Requirement

“Each covered employer must post in a conspicuous place on its premises a notice of FFCRA requirements. Such a posting can be done on a company website or by emailing employees.”

CARES act

The CARES Act

On March 27, 2020, the House of Representatives passed the largest economic bill in U.S. history and President Trump has signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) into law. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses.
