On April 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division released the long-awaited regulations to accompany the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which became effective on the same date. To help HR professionals and the business community better understand these new regulations, Oklahoma Human Resources State Council (OKHR), in partnership with the Crowe & Dunlevy Labor & Employment Practice Group, is hosting an educational recorded panel on Friday, April 3, 2020.
As a follow up to our first FFCRA panel discussion, Labor & Employment attorneys, with OKHR State Director Mike Shaw, will discuss important information gleaned from the regulations, including:
- Employee eligibility requirements
- The intricacies of calculating pay under the FFCRA
- The use of intermittent Emergency FMLA leave
- How small businesses can obtain an exemption from the FFCRA
- The scope of the definition of a “healthcare provider” for purposes of an FFCRA exemption
- The rules regarding leave due to school closure/childcare unavailability
- Employer and employee notice requirements
- Return to work and recordkeeping requirements
- And many more topics, including answers to questions posed in the first panel discussion now that the regulations are in place
OKHR and Crowe & Dunlevy will also post the recorded panel on YouTube and other social media channels when it becomes available.
