Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6201) was signed by President Donald Trump on March 18. A congressional summary of H.R. 6201 can be found here and here.

The legislation provides affected individuals with paid sick and family leave and create tax credits for affected employers, expands food and nutrition services, allows for emergency state unemployment insurance grants and increases Medicaid funding to states. The paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave provisions of the FFCRA apply to certain public employers and private employers with fewer than 500 employees. Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees may qualify for exemption from the requirement to provide leave due to school closings or child care unavailability if the leave requirements would jeopardize the viability of the business as a going concern. For further detail, please see the links below.
