Paid Federal Leave and COVID-19
Law firms, like all employers, are navigating uncharted waters during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which was signed into law on March 18, 2020, requires paid leave for employers with fewer than 500 employees for certain COVID-19-related absences. In addition, state and federal laws impose limits on employers’ ability to ask employees about medical information.
