The FFCRA’s paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave requirements expired on Dec. 31, 2020. “The Wage and Hour Division is attuned to the critical need for American workers and employers to understand this relief program as they deal with the effects of this crisis on the workplace,” said Wage and Hour Division Administrator Cheryl Stanton. “The guidance we issued provides clarity around some of the novel issues that the FFCRA’s expiration raises. We remain committed to providing as many tools and as much information as possible to all parties.”
By extending these tax credits to employers who voluntarily provide FFCRA leave, the CCA enables employers to provide paid leave, while at the same time ensuring that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus.
