If you have employees, or you are an employee, you should know that Congress has passed and the President has signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act to address the impact COVID-19 is having on the American workforce. Here is a summary from Gray Reed’s team of employment lawyers, headed by Ruth Ann Daniels. Among others, the law addresses these issues:
- FMLA expansion
- Paid sick leave
- Tax credits against the Social Security Tax
In the meantime, avoid doing those things that would encourage your employees to make an employment decision such as this one.
