As an association we strive to keep you up-to-date on relevant information for your business. Please review the following important communication from CALSAGA Legal Advisor Bradley & Gmelich LLP.
As you may know, on March 18, 2020, the President signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), emergency legislation in effect from April 1st through December 31st. The FFCRA requires certain employers to provide employees with additional paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.
Generally, the FFCRA provides:
1. Expanded family and medical leave that is provided when parents can’t work because their children’s schools or child care services are closed due to the pandemic (this even applies to businesses who would not otherwise qualify for FMLA);
2. 80 hours of additional emergency paid sick leave for employees unable to work (or telework) due to COVID-19;
3. Tax credits for employers related to the paid leave mandated by the FFCRA; and
4. Employers are required to provide notice to employees.
Even in challenging times, it is critical for employers to stay compliant with wage & hour laws, and to keep employees informed of changes in order to minimize risk later. That’s why CALSAGA’s legal advisor, Bradley & Gmelich LLP has been working with its clients to provide them with a package of FFCRA-compliant employment policies, as well as easy-to-use forms for their employees to use. Bradley & Gmelich has offered to provide the same policies and forms to you, as well as easy-to-follow instructions, at a reduced CALSAGA rate of $500 for the package (they are providing this package to their non-CALSAGA clients for $750). In addition, Bradley & Gmelich is donating 10% of the proceeds of each policy package back to CALSAGA!
