Emily Justice
18:17
Is the Emergency FMLA expansion also available for employee COVID illness or just because of school closure?
corbin granger
18:38
how to you define 50?
Suzi Brantley
18:52
What if someone has already taken 12 weeks of FMLA this year? Ex: If someone just returned from maternity leave. Have they already exhausted thier 12 weeks, or do they get an ADDITIONAL 12 weeks?
SANDRA LANGENBUCHER
19:07
Can you go over 75mi radius once more? What does that mean for businesses?
Stephanie Young
19:14
@Emily the FMLA is only if an employee is unable to work or telework and must be home to take care of their child under the age of 18 because of school closure or childcare closure
curtisa johnson
19:20
good question suzi
Stephanie Smith
19:29
With the tax credit since the legislation doesn't start until April 2nd the first credit will be on the 6/30/20 941, correct? Also is the credit for all wages paid under this legislation or just the tax SS and Medicare paid on these wages?
Stephanie Young
19:51
@Sandra for this bill the 75 mile radius doesn't apply its all employees full-time and part-time for a total count
corbin granger
19:53
What is can do partial work?
win whitehurst
20:18
So.... if No one is sick, but you've had to close anyway - gyms, restaurants, etc., does the FMLA expansion apply at all?
Lauren Naccarato
20:29
Anyway we can get the slides after this webinar?
Melissa Mielke
20:45
How do we as an employer verify requests for FMLA due to child care need? Is there anything we could request to verify that an employee actually has a child and school/daycare is closed?
Laura Hornsby
20:46
yes
Laura Hornsby
20:51
it will be on their webiste
Stephanie Young
20:53
@Lauren, yes! There is a link inside iSolved to our resources page
SANDRA LANGENBUCHER
21:05
If an employer has less than 50 employees and the 75mi radius are not applicable, the business is not required to provide this FMLA provision?
Emily Justice
21:33
Is it 2 weeks or 80 hours? We are on a 7.5 hour workday.
Al Fowler
22:08
What defines employees as we have 10 part time trainers that work 2 to 6 hours per week
Monica Morgan
22:42
When reviewing the H.R. 6201, the FMLA section mentions, "After the two weeks of paid leave, employees will receive a benefit from their employers that will be no less than two-thirds of the employee’s usual pay", but your slide mentioned the first 2 weeks are unpaid. Would you please clarify which is correct?
Victoria Kunhardt
23:11
Does business closing due to social distancing mandate fall into eligibility for the Sick Pay?
Francesca Jones
23:12
The first 10 days do NOT have to be paid by employer under these provisions BUT an employee CAN use available paid leave
Laura Hornsby
23:22
@Morgan - it depends if you are talking about FMLA or the Coronavirus emergency FMLA
Sarah Hackley
23:41
Do these guidelines apply to the public sector, specifically local government?
Todd Swindell
23:47
So, an employee can use the 2 weeks Emergency Paid Sick Leave in conjuction with FMLA and get paid for all 12 weeks?
Stephanie Smith
23:53
We do our FMLA calculation on a rolling 12 months, do previous FMLA that was taken for other illness apply to this leave or does this start over and this has to be calcualted on a Jan-Dec 2020 calendar year?
tammy franey
23:54
What are the Healthcare exemptions?
Laura Hornsby
24:18
The emergency FMLA starts 4/2/20 and ends 12/31/20
corbin granger
24:20
The two sets of leave discuss caring for a child- can this leave be stacked and refundable?
David Montanbeau
24:39
I have to leave. Will there be a recording of this that I can watch later?
Krista DiVenere
24:50
Under FFCRA is it 2/3 pay with a max of $200/day
Courtney Long
25:03
Anything for employers with greater than 500 employees?
Cassidy B
25:12
@krista thanks!!
David Montanbeau
25:19
I have to leave. Will there be a recording of this that I can watch later?

Brad Crouch

Galaxy S9
25:49
Do employees have to complete some type of certification form?
Brad Crouch
25:49
https://empower.dominionpayroll.com/covid-19updates
Tracy Hale
25:58
Does this new FMLA override any old FMLA rules? Meaning FMLA has to be paid for non COVID 19 illnesses? Because it's always been undpaid. So now do all FMLA absences require pay?
Deidra Mann
26:22
Would a medical office with 40 employees need to post these policies within 7 days? We should be exempt, correct?
Francesca Jones
26:24
@Tracy, the pay provisions are only COVID related
Brad Crouch
26:25
We update this multiple times a day and will have a recording of today’s webinar on there later today.
Cassidy B
26:28
@brad thank you!
Melissa Mielke
26:29
how do you determine if an employee is unable to perform any telework with a child in the house? Can a request be denied?
corbin granger
26:29
I've sent this question a number of times but the sick leave also allows re" care for a child
Josh Sojda
27:06
So if employees are able to telework from home the FMLA would not apply?
Lisa Black
27:24
What if a FT person can work some from home, can they access this leave to 'make them whole' for the rest of their work hours?
Suzi Brantley
27:36
Can an employer CHOOSE to pay at 100% instead of 2/3?
Lauren Naccarato
28:01
How does this affect businesses with less than 50 employees?
Cassidy B
28:02
I'm currently teleworking and am not on FMLA, because I've not been diagnosed with COVID-19 (yet, knock on wood).
Missy Martin
28:06
Question this is based on people who worked a full 30 days before correct or is it any hours in within 30 days.
Cassidy B
28:11
I echo Lauren's ?
Michelle Stanley
28:25
Is an employee who is unable to telework (not childcare related) covered under the FMLA clause?
Melissa Mielke
28:26
If employers provide an option to work from home, but the employee has a child under 18, how does FMLA work?
Paula Kramer
28:31
Will you just automatically set these codes up?
corbin granger
28:51
So can you combine paid sick and emergency as related to a child
corbin granger
29:11
because under ER leave first 10 days unpaid
Bill Ramsey
29:44
Is the credit equal to the wage paid or is equal to the social security tax on the wage paid?
Steve Russell
29:53
Before the Federal recommended isolation order, we decided to close our business for two weeks and pay our staff for that time. Can we now kick in the 10 day FMLA non-paid/
Cynthia Gustafson
30:02
is the credit ONLY for the wages and not the tax too? what about benefits during time off?
Gregg Lawrence
30:56
So if the employer has more than 500 employees - are this bill doesn't change anything for them?
Francesca Jones
31:02
@cynthia - great question
damien greenwood
31:11
Very basic question: Is HR6201 only for employees who get sick with Covid-19, or is it for all employees?
Cassidy B
31:15
Hallelujah to flow chart!
Monica Morgan
31:22
Can these tax scenarios be made available so we can see the impact of the taxes in relation to this paid leave.
Jennifer Golynsky
32:13
they waived the waiting period for unemployment benefits (was 1 week)
Reina Palencia
32:16
Has the healthcare exemption already been addressed?
Kevin Wilson
32:16
Lots of good questions here! Rest assured, any questions that we don’t specifically address during the webinar will be addressed later today.
Jason Navon
32:38
Does this apply if the business is shut down by the state in which case no employee in the company is working? Or if a business has to make difficult decisions as a result of the current economic climate? Or do these provisions only apply to on-going businesses with team members that can't work because they're impacted by COVID-19?
Stephanie Young
32:53
@Gregg correct, more than 500 employees, bill does not apply
Reina Palencia
32:56
*with behavioral health being included? As in community mental health rehabilitative services (fee for service)?
Jody Halloran
33:21
Can I clarify if businesses are continuing to pay employees even though we have little to no business during this time, this ACT will not provide any tax credits to those specific employers?
Lauren Naccarato
33:30
How does all of this affect businesses with less than 50 employees?
Frances McDermott
33:39
According to my research and reading of the law, the Expanded FMLA only applies to small employers for employees that are staying home to care for a child that does not have childcare or because schools are closed. The Expanded FMLA does not appear to apply to quarantine or care of a quarantined employee - Normal FMLA would apply to these cases.
Sharon Stopf
34:36
What if the employee has the symptoms but can't get a test because the dr. indicates they are holding tests for those with more severe symptons?
win whitehurst
35:08
Still not clear is FURLOUGHED employees are covered by any of these new benefits.
Melissa Mielke
35:44
can employers require a dr note showing release to return to work?
Thea Polito
36:09
Can pay cards get mailed directly to employees?
Kristy Davis
36:13
Can we question out-of-state travel or discourage it?
Cassidy B
36:18
Have they discussed extending ACA e-filing??
Reina Palencia
36:25
can employers require a doctor's note stating that there is a positive result or exposure, even though testing is not yet available for all?
Stephanie Young
36:41
Nothing yet on extending ACA that I have heard about.
Cassidy B
36:51
Thanks1

Brad Crouch

Missy Martin
