Determining eligibility for employee leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

This legislation provides paid leave benefits to certain employees affected by the coronavirus. This leave is effective from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

See below for simple flowcharts for use in determining an employee’s eligibility for the paid leave. Paid leave is not retroactive – it must be requested, documented, and taken on or after April 1, 2020. Note that paid leave cannot be used to pay for hours that an employee is no longer scheduled to work – it is not intended as a wage replacement program. It can only be used to pay an employee for hours that the employee is scheduled to work.
