Uncertain Status of FFCRA Paid Leave Requirements

December 10, 2020

Expire on December 31, 2020

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act’s (FFCRA) requirements that certain employers provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19 are currently set to expire on December 31, 2020. However, there are serious legislative negotiations ongoing that could potentially include an extension of FFCRA paid leave. Any extension would have to be done legislatively and could be included in either a federal government funding bill and/or COVID compromise bill before Congress adjourns this month. Speculation is that there could be a short-term extension into and/or through the first quarter of 2021.
