Families First Coronavirus Response Act
As part of sweeping legislation—the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)—signed into law by President Trump on March 18, 2020, two laws were enacted that provide workers with paid leave for reasons related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act allows 12 weeks of partially compensated FMLA leave to care for a child whose school or child care facility has been closed due to COVID-19. The Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act requires employers to provide 80 hours of paid sick time to employees in specified circumstances related to COVID-19 exposure and prevention. The legislation requires covered employers to post a notice of the FFCRA requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises.

We would like to encourage everyone to use the same hashtag, #COVID19SafetyStandDown, for sharing stories and photos on social media, as it will be beneficial for the entire construction industry to spread awareness of our stand-down efforts on social media.
