Families First Act webinar opportunity

By Jennifer Bortz, 03/20/20, 9:15AM EDT


I was on a conference call with members of the USA Gymnastics Staff and all the Regional Chairs yesterday to discuss Regional business.  During that time Annie Heffernon suggested passing out information on a webinar that might be interesting to gym owners during this time.  The law firm is the USA Gymnastics law firm and the webinar she specifically spoke to is the webinar scheduled for Monday March 23, 2020 on the Families First Act.  I have not reviewed the webinar, I am simply passing the information on to anyone who might be interested.

The new Act:

(1) creates paid emergency sick leave for employees and families impacted by COVID-19; and
(2) amends the FMLA to provide additional leave for COVID-19 qualifying reasons.

The Act takes effect on April 2, 2020.

The webinar registration link is under the “Webinar” portion of my firm’s COVID-19 web page:
