The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which requires emergency paid sick leave and expanded FMLA leave for employees’ COVID-related absences, is set to expire on December 31, 2020. This means that covered employers will no longer be mandated to provide FFCRA leave to employees as of the start of 2021. However, the coronavirus stimulus package recently passed by Congress allows covered employers to voluntarily provide FFCRA leave to employees through March 31, 2021 and claim the associated tax credits.
