Federal Agencies Announce Plans to Implement Emergency Paid Sick Leave

The U.S. Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and Department of Labor (DOL) announced plans to allow small and midsize employers to begin claiming two new refundable payroll tax credits, designed to immediately and fully reimburse them for the cost of providing COVID-19-related leave to their employees [IR-2020-57, 3-20-20]. The agencies are moving swiftly to implement the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (Pub. L. 116-127), which was signed into law on March 18, 2020.
