New DOL Guidance

The legal team (thank you, Allison) has some new updates to share with you.  See below:

The DOL has released new guidance in the form of Frequently Asked Questions regarding the FFCRA. This guidance answers the three (3) main questions we have received from clients:

  1. Can FFCRA leave be taken intermittently? – Yes. See questions 20-22.
  2. What documentation is required for the employee to take leave? See questions 15-16.
  3. Can an employee use PTO to supplement the 2/3 of your normal earnings from paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave under the FFCRA to get the additional 1/3 of your normal earnings in order to receive full normal earnings? If the employer and employee both agree. See questions 31-33.

"We started working with HR Partners when we had staffing changes in our Accounting and Human Resources department. HR Partners has been there to assist us in that transition and has become a resource that we plan to continue to utilize.

Everyone in their office is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and always very prompt. HR Partners has been able to provide advice and guidance on numerous HR topics and provided a mandatory Workplace Etiquette for our employees. They have also updated our personnel manual in order to provide clear and consistent polices for our employees. HR Partners would be an asset for any company looking for assistance with any human resources needs."
