DOL Releases Online Tool to Assist with Determining Eligibility for Paid Sick Leave Due to Coronavirus

The Department of Labor (DOL) launched an interactive online tool to help workers determine if they qualify for paid sick leave or extended family and medical leave to cover time away from work for reasons related to the coronavirus. An employer version of the online tool will be released soon.

The tool guides workers through a series of questions to help them determine if the paid leave provisions of the  Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) apply to their employer. If the provisions do apply, the tool helps them learn whether they qualify for either paid sick leave or extended family and medical leave under that law.
