  • On April 1, 2020, the Department of Labor (“DOL”) issued regulations implementing the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (the “EPSLA”) and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (the “EFMLEA”).
  • The regulations provide additional definitions and further clarification on employers’ obligations under the laws, and covered employers (employees with fewer than 500 employees) must act now to comply with the new requirements.
