Complying with Family First Coronavirus Act

The Department of Labor has issued a Question and Answer page designed to assist employers in complying with the recently passed Families First Coronavirus Act:

The Q&A provides answers to some initial questions relating to reaching the 500 employee mark; how to determine if an employer is a single or joint enterprise; and the interaction and combined use of sick leave and paid family leave while at home caring for a child.  Importantly, and without explanation for the change, the effective date of the Families First Coronavirus Act has been moved up to April 1, 2020 (formerly April 2, 2020).
