Greg Abrams Speaks With SHRM About State and Local Leave Laws, the FFCRA and the FMLA

In the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) article “What If FFCRA Expires at the End of the Year?” labor and employment partner Greg Abrams discusses why employers should follow updates to state and local leave laws and how the laws may impact an employee’s leave associated with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

Unless Congress acts, the FFCRA paid-leave requirements will expire at the end of 2020. But even if they expire, organizations that have generous paid-leave policies and those in states that have paid-leave laws will continue to grant time off to employees who have COVID-19 or whose children’s schools or childcare providers are closed.

Abrams told the publication that employers should always be cognizant that there could be leave laws at the state and local levels that may apply even when the FMLA and the FFCRA do not.
