The Department of Labor recently released revisions to its temporary rule regarding the FFCRA’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Expanded Family Medical Leave. Significantly, the revisions have narrowed the definition of a “health care provider” who can be excluded from the leave entitlements. It also addresses intermittent leave, employee notice of the need for leave, and reaffirm that leave can only be taken if the employer has work for the employee to do.
