COVID – 19 Updates for Employers

Self-Certification Leave Request

  • When an employee requests for emergency paid sick leave or emergency family and medical leave, you should require them to complete a form detailing their eligibility.
  • Additionally, Employers may also require their Employees to use any existing PTO to supplement their emergency family and medical leave.

PPP – Notice of Reinstatement

  • For the PPP Loan, one way to achieve 100% loan forgiveness is to rehire all of the employees that were furlough/laid-off due to Covid -19.
  • When doing so, you should provide a notice of rehire and reinstatement explicitly stating that the employee is returning to work under the same terms and conditions prior to being furlough/laid-off.
