37: COVID19 Leave Laws

Local governments are asking a lot of questions about the new federal legislation on sick leave and expanded FMLA. As a result, Ancel Glink's labor and employment team recently hosted a webinar on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act, and we're pleased to share it with you on Ancel Glink's Quorum Forum podcast! Listen to Keri-Lyn Krafthefer, Margaret Kostopulos, Chris Welch, and Matt DiCianni discuss common questions about new COVID19 leave laws, including:

What local governments does this apply to?

Which employees do these laws cover?

Under what circumstances do we have to pay employees under these laws?

How do these laws relate to our existing leave laws?

How does this apply to first responders?

How can we prevent abuses of these laws?

What are the best practices?

...and more!
