FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RELIEF ACT (FFCRA)
DETERMINING YOUR ELIGIBILITY AS AN EMPLOYEE 

American workers can use a new online portal to determine if they qualify for COVID-related paid leave outlined in part of a federal coronavirus relief law. The tool, launched Tuesday by the U.S. Department of Labor, asks participants a series of questions to determine if their employers must comply with Families First Coronavirus Response Act paid leave coverage and to make clear if employees should seek paid sick leave or extended family and medical leave. Workers can get a varying amount of paid time off at regular or reduced wages if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, quarantined, or caring for family members or children. Businesses with fewer than 500 employees will receive federal tax credits as reimbursement for the costs of paid leave
