Employer Response to COVID-19

For those employers required to comply with the Familes First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), the federal government has indicated that documentation will be required to substantiate payroll tax deductions claimed for providing Emergency Paid Sick Leave and expanded paid COVID-19 FMLA leave.  The link below contains a form recommended by Miller Johnson for documenting any employee requests for such leave.  Please retain any completed forms (whether approved or denied) in your records—not only to substantiate your payroll tax deductions but also to provide support if any allegations arise regarding denied leave.
