TAUD COVID-19 UPDATE

Employer Paid Leave Requirements in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

The Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) was enacted on March 18, 2020, and became effective on April 1, 2020. The FFCRA requires certain employers to provide their employees with two benefits for specified reasons related to COVID-19: emergency paid sick leave and emergency paid family and medical leave. State and local governments are covered employers regardless of the size of their workforce. Therefore, all local government utilities and non-governmental utilities with less than 500 employees in Tennessee must provide their employees with the emergency paid sick leave and emergency paid family and medical leave authorized in the FFCRA when they qualify.
