Employee Leaves – DOL New Guidance

U.S. Department of Labor publishes new guidance related to employee leaves as the workplaces reopen.

Questions and answers related to employee leaves and “COVID-19 and the American Workplace” can be found on the DOL website: “Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Questions and Answers”. One of the topic that is addressed on the DOL website is:

Can employees that are not teleworking take expanded family and medical leave intermittently while a child’s school or place of care is closed, or child care provider is unavailable, due to COVID-19-related reasons?

Yes, but only with the employer’s permission. Intermittent expanded family and medical leave should be permitted only when the worker and the company agree upon such a schedule.

Employers and employees collaboration to achieve flexibility is encouraged by the DOL. Therefore, if employers and employees agree to intermittent leave on a day-by-day basis, the department supports such voluntary arrangements.
