What employers need to know about the Families First act
On March 18, 2020, the president signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act into law. Of special interest to you are the employer-related sections. Among other things, this law mandates emergency paid sick leave and paid FMLA to cover specific circumstances related to COVID-19. (It offers payroll tax credits to offset wages paid under these sections.)
Recording these hours on employee time cards within Attendance on Demand (AOD) or Attendance Enterprise (AE) is the preferred method. In order to begin recording and isolating these COVID-19 Emergency Leave hours, additional parameter configurations must first be performed by our technical support staff. To get these configurations implemented within your system, you must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and request COVID-19 Related Configurations.
