With all the uncertainties stemming from COVID-19, it is essential for employers to understand their rights and the rights of their employees under federal laws such as the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Making informed decisions now can help to mitigate possible issues later.
Under the FMLA, eligible employees who are sick or who are taking care of a sick family member may be entitled to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave. Does this include employees suffering from COVID-19 and their family members? What about those employees seeking to stay home pursuant to the FMLA in order to avoid getting COVID-19 or those who need to stay home with children dismissed from school?
