Re “Voluntary Paid Covid-19 FMLA Extended” — is this the same as FFCRA terms?
Timothy Jefferies Boilermakers
31:33
relating to FMLA, can a contractor still apply for this even though it expires at the end of the month?
Saad Muhammad
31:34
if employer waived FFCRA last year can they change their hearts this time
Sandy Thompson, TOTEM Assoc.
32:41
School District eligible for this new FML? They are saying they are a private entity.
steve.sander
37:25
So the 12 weeks of FMLA extension and the 80 hours of extended paid sick leave - if you used the 12 weeks or the 80 hours in 2020, you don't get to use either of these again, is that correct?
Saad Muhammad
41:23
incorrect you get a new set
RFortier-Bourne
42:55
I do not believe you get an additional 12 weeks, but you can continue to use what is remaining. However, I do believe you get an additional 80 hours of paid sick leave.

Can you opt into COBRA if you declined it prior to 3/1/21 because you didn’t want to pay for it and you enrolled in a marketplace (Obamacare) plan? In other words, can you drop your Obamacare plan and opt back into COBRA effective 4/1/21.
