Reopening New York — Handling Employees Who Want to Stay Home with Their Children

August 26, 2020

By: Adam P. Mastroleo

As a bonus to Bond’s Aug. 25 webinar about the evolving legal implications of COVID-19 for business, we’ve posted a short video by Bond labor and employment attorney Adam Mastroleo, in which he answers a question many employers have been asking: “What should I do with employees who asks for time off because their children are learning from home?” 

Adam breaks down the criteria employees would have to satisfy to be entitled to expanded leave under the Family Medical Leave Act or emergency paid sick leave under the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act.

The full presentation covered the following topics:

  • Unemployment Insurance Update – Where are We Now?
  • Payroll Tax Update – Where are We Now (Part II)?
  • Update from Albany
  • Reopening Issues – Where are we Now (Part III)?
  • School Reopening Update
