Federal Court Strikes Down Significant FFCRA Paid Leave Regulations – How Should Employers Respond?
Recorded On: 09/02/2020
In August, a federal court in New York struck down a number of the US Department of Labor’s regulations implementing the paid leave provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. As a result, employers with fewer than 500 employees are finding themselves in a legal quandary – do they conform to the now legally questionable regulations and risk later being found to be out of compliance with the law, or do they conform to the more employee-friendly construction found required by the court? This webinar will review the key holdings of the court’s ruling, including issues relating to its scope and options for employers to consider while awaiting clarity of the legal blur it caused.
This webinar will be recorded and available on-demand shortly after live webinar.
