Family Medical Leave Act Update
Important Notice: There is an expectation from the U.S. Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service that further guidance will be released Thursday March 26th. There is a need for more detailed information in the execution of payrolls, tracking of Emergency Family Medical Leave Act (EFMLA) utilization and the payment of sick leave under the Emergency Paid Sick Leave law.
We anticipate having the necessary software enhancements in place for payroll beginning the first of April for payrolls going forward. Payrolls prior to April 1, 2020 are not impacted by these new laws.
