Provisions for Leave in the Consolidated Appropriations Act

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act has expired, but the new stimulus bill has provisions for Leave. What do employers need to know?

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was signed into law by President Trump on March 18, 2020. It took effect on April 1, 2020, and expired on December 31, 2020, meaning employers were no longer mandated to offer these benefits starting January 1, 2021. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, however—which was signed into law on December 27, 2020—allows employers that were covered by the FFCRA in 2020 the option to extend FFCRA pay benefits to eligible employees and to take the FFCRA tax credits for those leaves through March 31, 2021.
