Department of Labor Updates COVID-19 FFCRA Leave Rule

The U.S. Department of Labor last Friday issued a new temporary rule updating who qualifies for emergency paid sick leave through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, after a federal judge struck down parts of the previous rule. The rule, which takes effect Sept. 16, clarifies the definition of healthcare providers for whom employers do not need to offer leave; specifies that employers do not need to provide leave to furloughed employees; and offers new guidance as to what constitutes “intermittent leave.”
