Gary Fowler, Judy Bennett Garner, and Sarah Mitchell Montgomery discussed key provisions of the FFCRA, including the creation of the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act, as well as the acts related to employee benefits, amendments to other federal laws, and the tools provided to individuals and employers to help ride out the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak.
