The Department of Labor has released information on common issues employers and employees face when responding to COVID-19, and its effects on wages and hours worked under the Fair Labor Standards Act, job-protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, and paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The new law allows employers of health care providers or emergency responders to elect to exclude such employees from eligibility for the leave provided under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
