Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)

As you may be aware, Congress approved the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), an economic stimulus plan aimed at addressing the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on Americans.  The FFCRA provides paid sick leave and/or expanded family and medical leave to employees for specific reasons related to COVID-19.

Please go to https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/families-first-coronavirus-response-act-ffcra-or-act  on the Human Resources’ webpage to view the Department of Labor's FFCRA notice.  Additionally, please note:

  1. The FFCRA provisions apply to full and part time employees
  2. The FFCRA provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020
  3. The paid leave is not charged to employees' time accruals
  4. Employees are required to give notice of the need to take leave and provide documentation to support the leave request
