The FFCRA was passed in March 2020 in response to the C0VID19 issues that arose in the workplace. The Act was passed swiftly and had huge implications on employers both financially and from a staffing perspective. The intent was to slow the spread of the virus without employees losing pay or job but it has been a burden on employers. Employers have scrambled to comply with these regulations. The Department of Labor and EEOC have since issued statements and interpretations of the FFCRA to help with compliance. Recently, the DOL amended the regulations in response to uncertainty and confusion but these changes have major implications for healthcare employers.
