Families First Coronavirus Response Act and New York Quarantine Leave Law


I have spoken to many of you over the past few weeks and it is uplifting to hear your strength and dedication to your businesses and employees. If we have not spoken, I am here should you need any help or guidance as we all navigate new challenges.


As I am sure you are aware, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the New York COVID-19 Quarantine Leave Law have been enacted. Please find the required FFCRA Notice that must be distributed to your employees by April 1 on the Department of Labor website. For those who have employees telecommuting, you can distribute this Notice by email or on your intranet. For those who still have employees coming to a physical location, the Notice can be posted with your other required notices.  New York does not have a notice requirement, but all the information you should need can be found at https://paidfamilyleave.ny.gov/COVID19.


Please find a chart I created detailing the basic requirements of both the FFCRA and the NYS law on our other blog post. As particular questions arise specific to your businesses, please reach out to me directly.


Until we talk next, I wish you, your employees, and your families the best.
