Be Cautious With Covid-19 Employee Leave And Benefits
Now that Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (an additional $600 per week) has terminated, and children are returning to school on a partial or full-time remote learning basis, many employees are confronting numerous personal issues such as difficult cash flow, an inability to both work and provide child supervision, and anxiety about the safety of the workplace and public transportation. As a result, many employees are looking for additional sources of financial relief--and are turning to their employers and governmental assistance programs. We have received a marked increase in inquiries concerning employees’ entitlements to paid family and medical leave, paid sick leave, unemployment insurance, and the newly enacted program providing for $300 per week under a Federal “lost wages assistance” program created by an Executive Order signed on August 8th.
