**NEW** Families First Corona Virus Act (FFCRA)
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act) requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. These provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Employees must provide Human Resources at least 30 days advance notice of an anticipated FMLA leave. When the need for leave is not foreseeable, the employee must provide notice as soon as both possible and practical. The employer has no obligation to retroactively designate leave as FMLA. Once the request is received by Human Resources and FMLA eligibility has been determined, you will receive FMLA information within 5 business days.
Washington State Paid Family Medical Leave (PFML)
On January 1, 2020, a new state-mandated insurance program began which is administered through Washington State called Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML). If you wish to apply for that benefit is done directly with the state. To learn more about the program please visit their website at www.paidleave.wa.gov.
(Please know if you choose this route you do not accrue service credits or sick leave/vacation during that time.)
Any questions regarding the above mentioned resources should be directed to Kameil Borders or Melissa Herzog. As a reminder any medical information is considered confidential and you only need to supply those documents to Human Resources.
