 Mandatory Paid Sick Leave Begins April 1st Under Federal Law, Along With an FMLA Expansion: Learn the Details of These New Federal Regulations and the Impacts of Local Ordinances

Presented by Misty Hubbard Gutierrez, Thomas, Feldman & Wilshusen, LLP

 

New Federal legislation requires paid sick leave for employees impacted by COVID-19 and isolation orders and expands FMLA coverage to employees who must care for a child whose school or daycare has been closed. Meanwhile, the city of Dallas is scheduled to begin enforcing its own paid sick leave ordinance, and shutdown in Austin, and potentially other localities, trigger employers' obligations under the new federal regulations.

 The federal law applies to employers with fewer than 500 employees and applies when the employee or an employer's family member becomes ill, or when an employee is subject to an isolation or quarantine order. The webinar will discuss the details of federal and local laws, who they apply to, and what you need to know to comply.
