Coronavirus: Paid Sick, Family, and Medical Leave
Updated: March 15, 2020
Please contact your employer with questions about paid sick leave and paid family and medical leave plans available to you.
On March 14, 2020, the House passed H.R. 6201, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The Senate is expected to consider this bipartisan legislation which provides two weeks of paid sick leave and up to three months of paid family and medical leave to government employees and workers at businesses with 500 or fewer employees.
Under the bill, employers will get a 100% tax credit for the paid sick leave and paid family and medical leave they provide for their employees.
