Updated Q&As on COVID-19 and FMLA


1 minute read

The Department of Labor (DOL) has updated its “COVID-19 and the Family and Medical Leave Act Questions and Answers” webpage. It has been reoriented to be geared towards employees (rather than employers) and adds additional information about employee leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).

The Q&A revisions also:

  • Affirm the employer’s ability to request a physician’s note to certify the need for FMLA;
  • Alert readers to state or federal leave requirements that may apply even if FMLA does not;
  • Update language explaining how telemedicine visits can establish a serious health condition under FMLA.

The questions also expand the discussion of nondiscrimination laws employers must avoid during layoffs.
