Families First Coronavirus Response Act – Resources

Families First Coronavirus Response Act – Resources

The Families First Act, passed Congress and signed by the President last week, is intended support employees during the Covid-19 response. Importantly, the Act requires employers to do the following, effective April 2:

  • Provide emergency paid sick leave
  • Provide emergency FLMA leave
  • Notice employees of these benefits

To offset costs, employers are eligible for tax deductions for up to 100% of the wages paid under the Act up to the amount of all payroll taxes paid on ALL employees’ wages from now until December 31, 2020. The Department of Labor will issue guidelines on how to apply for these credits.
