New Tool Helps Employees Determine Their Eligibility for FFCRA Paid Leave

An important update for domestic and household workers regarding FFCRA Paid Leave Eligibility from our friends at GTM Payroll Services.

“The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has created an online tool to help workers determine whether they qualify for paid leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

Household employees like nannies, housekeepers, and senior caregivers may be eligible for paid leave under FFCRA under certain pandemic-related reasons:

  • Up to two weeks of sick leave (full pay for self, 2/3 pay for family care) for illness, quarantine, or school/daycare closures
  • Up to 12 weeks of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave for school/daycare closures (10 days unpaid and then up to 10 weeks at 2/3 pay)

The tool poses questions to help employees assess whether their employers are subject to the paid leave provisions of the FFCRA.”
