DOL FAQs Address End of Temporary Paid Leave Program

Today, the Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division announced that it has added new guidance to a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) relating to temporary leave mandates that Congress enacted last year as part of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The federal leave mandates expired at the end of 2020. While employees are no longer entitled to leave under the program, DOL will continue to receive complaints and, where appropriate, seek enforcement of the law's provisions for violations that occurred prior to the expiration of the program.
