Families First Coronavirus Response Act – Employer Guidance Update

March 17, 2020

In response to the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) (H.R. 6201) on March 14, 2020.  In Families First Coronavirus Response Act – Employer Guidance Update, we address what FFCRA will mean for employers and employees.

As with everything right now, things are changing frequently.  We encourage you to monitor the CDC and MDH websites, as well as monitor the progress of state and federal relief measures.  We will continue to provide updates in the coming days.

As always, we are committed to helping you and your organizations through these trying times.  Please do not hesitate to contact our employment team if any questions arise.
