US Department of Labor Provides Guidance on Paid Sick and Family Leave

Source: Department of Labor

The Department of Labor just updated its ‘Questions and Answers’ on paid sick and family leave during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This includes guidance on: (i) teleworking, furloughs, layoffs, reduced schedules, and office closures (employees are not eligible for paid sick or family leave under such circumstances); (ii) documentation that should be collected by an employer to support an employee’s paid leave request and be able to claim tax credits; and (iii) intermittent leave (not required, but allowable at the employer’s choosing, and only if an employee is teleworking or the leave is to care for a child whose school has closed).
