    Hi All,

    Does FFCRA expire on Dec. 31, 2020? That is my understanding.
    My understanding is that the ACT covers employers who employee under 500.

    How do you address employees who call in to request FFCRA sick leave?

    It depends on the size of your business–our business is of the size that we need to comply with FFCRA which provides coverage for these situations. Of course, that expires 12/31/2020, but at least is in place through the end of the year. We require the employee to provide information about why they need the FFCRA hours (being tested, experiencing symptoms, etc) for our records and tracking. 

    We've also had a couple of large corporate clients say that they would provide sick pay for contractors if needed. So far everything has been covered by FFCRA so we haven't had to dip into that offer, but it was nice to see them providing the option.

    Hi Cathy

    We have them sign a document via DocuSign stating that they have requested and acknowledge receiving the FFCRA due to either having been exposed and were told to stay home by the employer (client) until they are asymptomatic, or tested positive and instructed to quarantine. This document is then uploaded into our system should there ever be an audit.

    When they fill out their time card we instruct them to add a note in the comments section stating Covid, which we can then track the hours utilized.
