    Brooke Willard – COVID-Related Changes to Paid Sick Leave

    Brooke Willard – COVID-Related Changes to Paid Sick Leave

    Jackson Walker Labor & Employment attorney Brooke Willard returns to give an update on the changes in paid sick leave. The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) extended employee paid sick leave due to COVID-related reasons through September 30, 2021. In addition, ARPA created three new qualifying reasons for when an employee can take this kind of leave:

    1) The employee is getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
    2) The employee is recovering from an injury, disability, or illness related to a COVID-19 vaccine.
    3) The employee is waiting on the results of a COVID-19 test or at the employer's request.

    The good news is that employers may claim a tax credit for providing up to 10 days of paid sick leave to individual employees, or up to 12 weeks of paid family leave, subject to the new non-discriminatory rules put in place by ARPA.

    On Thursday, March 11, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 into law.

Jackson Walker ERISA partner Greta Cowart explains some of the changes for employer-provided health coverage in the American Rescue Plan Act and what those changes mean for employers who need to understand their responsibilities.
