The President has signed a bipartisan $2 trillion economic relief plan to offer assistance to tens of millions of American households affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Its components include stimulus payments to individuals, expanded unemployment coverage, student loan changes, different retirement account rules, along with various other types of relief for employers.
Emergency paid sick leave & FML Expansion
The federal government has recently passed legislation to further assist workers during this global health emergency, as many employees are dealing directly with COVID-19, or their ability to work is impacted by childcare centers and schools closing. The University of Louisville is an eligible employer for two of these emergency programs, the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA) and the Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (FMLA Expansion).
Below, you can click on the U.S. Department of Labor posters that explain more about these two programs and employee rights. In addition to being provided digitally for telecommuter employees, these posters are also being posted in university offices.
