Employment Law: COVID-19 Question of the Week 5
What is the process for seeking a credit for the additional sick leave wages paid to employees under FFCRA?
According to the WHD Rule of April 4, 2020, under the FFCRA, covered private employers qualify for reimbursement through refundable tax credits as administered by the Department of the Treasury, for all qualifying paid sick leave wages and qualifying family and medical leave wages paid to an employee who takes leave under the FFCRA, up to per diem and aggregate caps, and for allocable costs related to the maintenance of health care coverage under any group health plan while the employee is on the leave provided under the FFCRA. For information on the tax credits, see these resources from the IRS: Form 7200 and Notice About Employment Tax Credits.
