The Department of Labor today issued a temporary rule to enable new paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave requirements established under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

The rule, which is necessary for the new policy to become operational on April 1, 2020, effective on April 2, 2020, and expire on Dec. 31, 2020, codifies changes to the federal definition of “health care provider.” Read the April 1 AHA Special Bulletin on how these policy changes affect hospital and health system employees.
