On March 18, 2020, as a direct result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, President Trump signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“Act”) into law. This new Act is also known as HR 6201. The two key laws that will impact many Employers are the: (1) Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (“FMLA Expansion Act”); and (2) Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (“Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act”).
