Steely Comments on Effects of Revised FFCRA Regulations

05 October 2020 SHRM News
Partner Rachel Powitzky Steely was quoted in a SHRM article, “Revised FFCRA Regulations May Prompt Policy Updates,” about policies employers may need to change in light of the U.S. Department of Labor’s recent revisions to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) regulations.
 
Because the timing of the documentation requirements for FFCRA leave have changed, Steely said, employers should revise their leave-request forms and policies to state that a request for leave and required documentation should be provided to the employer as soon as practicable, not prior to leave.
