COVID-19 Related Leave Information

This page contains information pertaining to leave options available to employees due to COVID-19.

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) provides two forms of paid leave to assist employees impacted by COVID-19: Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and Expanded Family and Medical Leave (EFML). Employees may access FFCRA leave only when the employee has an assigned function/role that is capable of being performed, either onsite or at a remote location, but the employee is unable to perform the assigned duties due to certain, specific COVID-19 related reasons. These new paid leave provisions became effective April 1, 2020 and expire on December 31, 2020.
