The Families First Coronavirus Response Act's (FFCRA's) emergency paid-leave provisions apply to businesses with fewer than 500 employees, but there are exceptions available for small businesses and companies that employ health care workers. Many employers will have to provide up to 80 hours of paid-sick-leave benefits if employees need leave to care for their own or someone else's coronavirus-related issues. The legislation also updates the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to provide workers with job-protected, paid leave when they can't work—either onsite or remotely—because their minor son's or daughter's school or child care service is closed due to the public health emergency.
