On March 18, the president signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which temporarily provides for expanded paid leave for employees.

In this webinar, ASA attorneys Stephen Dwyer and Ed Lenz will moderate a panel discussion featuring Miller & Chevalier Chartered attorneys Marc J. Gerson, Elizabeth F. Drake, and Thomas M. Cryan Jr. They will explain the law’s leave mandates and entitlements, discuss what is likely to be included in forthcoming regulations and a “phase III” stimulus bill, and provide an overview of staffing firms’ obligations under the new law.

During this webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • How the Families First Coronavirus Response Act changes Family and Medical Leave Act benefits and provides for paid sick leave for many workers in the U.S.
  • How the government will address the liquidity concerns of employers
  • How the new refundable payroll tax credits will work
  • What funding will be provided to states for expanded unemployment insurance benefits
  • What provisions are likely to be included in the forthcoming stimulus bill
