Sick Leave

Families First Coronavirus Response Act including Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSL) & Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFML)

While the laws that required employers to pay sick leave and expand FMLA expired on December 31, 2020, wages and benefit premiums paid under both laws can still be credited against a non-public employer’s payroll tax liabilities without needing to wait for quarterly filings.  Read the employer guidance here.

Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSL)

  • Employer credit for paid sick leave and family leave. The FFCRA provided a refundable payroll tax credit for mandated paid sick and family leave. The bill extends the tax credit through March 2021 for employers that continue to voluntarily offer paid sick and family leave to their employees.

Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFML)

  • Employer credit for paid family and medical leave.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 provided a federal tax credit for employers that provide paid family and medical leave to their employees. The December 27, 2020 relief package extends the employer tax credit through Dec. 31, 2025 and applies to wages paid in taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2020.
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act provides employees who have been on the job for at least 30 days, with the right to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave that is not required to be paid by the employer, meaning the employee will be able to return to their job after the 12 weeks of leave.
