EMPLOYMENT LAW

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”).

Buckley Law’s Employment Group has been closely following new federal and state laws and emergency orders as they develop to keep its clients up to date in an ever-changing environment and we will continue to monitor as we work our way through this crisis.

NOTE: The articles will be updated regularly as the law is further clarified by the Department of Labor.
