It was the most wonderful time of the year! – August Business Law Recap

November 03, 2020

If you are a parent, this was the most wonderful time of the year because kids went back to school.  However not a day goes by where one of the following terms pops up in conversation:  hybrid, virtual, cyber, home and for the few, full-time in person.

With guidance being constantly updated and many school districts changing in reaction, it is no wonder there is a whole bunch of confusion and frustration.  I won’t even go into a betting pool to be all virtual (my bet is one month from school opening if that’s worth anything).

Keeping this in mind, I thought it may be helpful to put some Covid-related FMLA and FFCRA refreshers in this update for those businesses who have employees with kids that are not back to school full time:

COVID 19 & FMLA – This is a good FAQ from the Department of Labor
Back to School and FFCRA – A good Families First Coronavirus Response Act overview from the National Law Review.

There are also helpful tools for employers at the resource pages below:

Good luck with the start of the school year.  I hope I don’t have to write the same subject this time next year.
