Federal, State And Local COVID-19 Leave Laws Expiring Soon

Posted by Rebecca Scott on Dec 22, 2020 4:01:00 PM

This year has left many in a disarray with COVID-19, which resulted in the enactment of many new federal, state and local leave laws. These leave laws were enacted at different points throughout 2020 with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) arriving early on April 1, 2020, and others like the Long Beach, California Supplemental Paid Sick Leave Ordinance coming later (May 19, 2020). Most of these laws were enacted with an expiration date, which means as leave managers, you need to be kept up-to-date in the coming months. 

Given that this is such a busy time of the year, we wanted to help you stay informed on when these COVID-19-related leave laws are expected to end. Please note that the majority of these leaves have an end date of December 31, 2020, but with the pandemic still blazing across the county they could be extended.

Managing leaves is difficult in and of itself, and now it's an even bigger challenge due to the global health pandemic. The cause of the pandemic, COVID-19, has definitely made an impact on all areas of leave management:

  • Many leave teams have had to adjust and are working remotely, which can be extremely challenging without access to a leave law resource.
  • Since there are higher volumes of employees taking medical leave and caring for sick family members, operating with a spreadsheet-driven leave process has become unsustainable.
  • Numerous HR/Benefits teams have seen layoffs in the past few weeks, leaving them with more work and few resources. 
  • New leave laws are being added and leave laws are constantly being updated, therefore staying up-to-date is crucial, now more than ever.  

Fortunately, our parent company, Presagia has created a new infographic, The 5 W's of Unpaid State Family Medical Leave to help you stay informed about the fundamentals of unpaid state family and medical leave laws, which can overlap with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
