Families First Coronavirous Response Act (FFCRA): Resource for faculty, staff and families
The Southern Lehigh School District would like to share with all Southern Lehigh School District employees and community the following information from the United States Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division pertaining to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which was signed into law on March 18, 2020 and takes effect on April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. The FFCRA relief package includes two (2) distinct provisions that provide emergency leave to employees: (1) the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (“EPSLA”); and (2) the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (“EFMLEA”). It is important to note the benefits provided by the FFCRA are not retroactive and benefits provided by employers until March 31, 2020 do not count toward FFCRA.
