Welcome back to part three of our three part series on the Families First Corona Virus Response Act. Part three focuses on the emergency family leave enacted by the new law. This impacts companies with less than 500 employees. And is available to employees who have been on the job at least 30 days. In this case, up to 12 weeks may be taken by an employee impacted by COVID-19. Emergency Leave through this program is different. Eligible employees may take leave if the employee is unable to work (or telework) because they must care for a child (under 18 years of age) whose school or care provider is closed or unavailable due to a COVID-19 emergency as declared by a Federal, State, or local authority.
