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.

"HR Partners provides a screening process when searching for candidates for a position. The phone screens save me valuable time and give me the information needed to decide whether to invite someone to our office for an in-person interview.

They also serve as a knowledgeable resource for up to date standards with HR issues. Two of the most significant improvements would be making the hiring process a breeze and having a resource to provide valuable feedback on HR issues. HR Partners allows you to continue to work on your mission, whatever it might be, while spending less time on HR issues. You have the confidence when hiring someone that they will have the skills/knowledge to the job well."
