The Gist Of This Episode: Signed into law March 18, 2020, this legislation is for employers, and it contains a number of components that are designed to address the current coronavirus pandemic. In this episode, Rachel will explain what this legislation is so you will be ready when it goes into effect on April 2, 2020. As this is a rapidly changing situation, updates will be made as needed. 

What you will learn:

  • What businesses this applies to (yes it applies to you!)
  • How do employees qualify
  • How much do you have to pay
  • Are there any exemptions
  • and more!

FAQs:

An employee can take emergency paid sick leave if the employee is unable to work (even by telework) for the following reasons:

  • experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and seeking a medical diagnosis
  • federal, state or governmental quarantine or isolation/shelter in place order related to COVID-19
  • caring for a son or daughter whose school or place of care is closed, or whose child care provider is unavailable, due to COVID-19 precautions
  • advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine because of COVID-19
  • care giving for an individual under quarantine/isolation/shelter in place order or self-quarantine
  • experiencing any other substantially similar conditions specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services
