Reopening New York — Employee Health Screenings and Eligibility for Leave Under FFCRA

September 17, 2020

By: Jessica C. Moller, Theresa E. Rusnak, and Erin S. Torcello

As a bonus to Bond’s Sept. 15 webinar about the evolving legal implications of COVID-19 for business, we’ve posted two short videos of Bond labor and employment attorneys addressing some frequently asked questions:

  1. Jessica Moller and Erin Torcello discuss how employers have been handling staff health screenings. Erin said she generally advises clients to rely on their employees to self-monitor and self-report their temperatures and symptoms.

  2. Theresa Rusnak and Jessica Moller answer questions about employees seeking leave to care for their children learning at home and what circumstances satisfy the eligibility requirements to qualify for the leave under the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA). 


The full presentation covered the following topics:

  • Update from Albany
  • DOL Revised FFCRA Regulations
  • New EEOC COVID Guidance
  • COVID Litigation Update
