5 things to know about the new coronavirus paid leave law
from Construction Dive
Amid fears of a declining economy, Congress passed and President Donald Trump signed into law emergency legislation. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) includes several provisions, but two of them have a particular impact on employers with fewer than 500 employees. Such firms employed 47%, or some 59.9 million people in the U.S. in 2019, according to data from the U.S. Small Business Administration — just shy of half the country's workforce. Now those same employers, many of them already thrown into operational crises due to scaled-back consumer demand, revenue and operations, are scrambling to implement the FFCRA's emergency leave protections by its effective date, April 2.
