Webinar: Emergency Paid Leave and COVID-19


Watch Here


In March 2020, the U.S. passed our first national paid leave policy. New laws mean that more Americans could receive up to 10 days of paid sick leave related to COVID-19 and 10 weeks of paid leave for school or daycare closures.


Emergency paid family leave and sick days can provide time for respite, recovery, and care during COVID-19. Parents can take emergency leave when schools close or shift to distance learning. Covered employers can receive refundable tax credits to offset the cost of providing emergency leave.

On August 20, the Center for Public Justice hosted a panel on emergency paid family leave and sick days during COVID-19 featuring Rachel Anderson (director, Families Valued) and Molly Westen Williamson (senior attorney, A Better Balance). This webinar provides detailed information on who is eligible, how to secure benefits, and how to educate your community.
