Cannot hear anything
CEC

No issues hearing him over here but I called in and am not using the audio on the computer
steve.beaudoin
19:23
cannot hear anything
rjivan
19:32
With schools shut down, possibly through the end of the year, does that mean every employee with kids that cannot telework is automatically paid 12 weeks under the new FMLA?
Laura
19:43
I have heard mixed information on the under 50 employees. Do you have to request an exception or are you automatically exempted because you are not required to give FMLA in general.
MarlowJ
19:57
I could not hear through computer so called in and it works fine.
David Fiore
20:19
My computer sound is fine. There are often 2 levels of sound the Speakers and the PC volume. Check both and make sure one or the other isn't muted.
Sknob
20:21
what is the call in number
rjivan
20:57
If we have an STD policy that pays more than the sick pay policy or paid FMLA, and the employee meets the terms of STD, does the benefit default to the highest payout or does the new leave override?
Elis
22:26
Can you please talk again about the 6 hours to pay lay offs.
Miranda

SandyCrow

if I furlough an employee, do I need to continue to pay for their benefits. What happens withtheir portion of the payment of the benefits
Jeremy Wilson
25:19
Quarantine 14 days or 7 days (incubation period)?
Miranda
25:57
what if employees are laborers and have not PTO or sick leave
belinda
26:18
do those potential people have to be paid during the 14 days? those one potentially close to anyone with symptoms or diagnosed
rjivan
26:46
Should we assume in the absence of a test, since few people have access to testing, that a presumed positive (dr.) or assumed positive (employee) shold all be treated the same?
John Pittman
27:13
did he say 199 or 499?
Cara Goodman
27:22
1-499
Cinamon
27:58
Thanks Cara
Matt Newman
28:23
If you layoff them off at the same time they claim they got sick, do you have to pay them the paid sick leave 80 hours or not? Does it depend on whether you layoff them off first, or they notify you they are sick just before you lay them off?
Brandi
28:27
When paying sick leave do we have to pay all union benfits? Vacation, pension annuity
yah
29:05
What if an employee has someone at home who is sick with most symptoms but they have not been tested for COVID-19 and the doctors office is not wanting to test that person.
CEC
29:28
Do they only get the 80 hours of sick leave if they test positive for COVID-19?
mattw
29:37
do we need proof an employee has COVID 19 to be properly reimbursed on Qtrly 941 Payroll Tax from FEDS. Probably don't pay just based on an employee saying they have it, but extensive proof also prevents paying the employee in need.
Racel
30:05
With the FMLA expansion, there is a 10 day period of unpaid for those over 30 days employed. Can those same employees use Paid Sick days for those 10 days?
Rhonda Woodruff
30:15
If they have already taken sick time for possible Covid19, without testing, and now claiming they need to be quarantined for possible exposure- are we obligated to pay More sick time?
mclement
30:24
Are union (collective bargaining) employees paid sick leave by the employer, or by the union?
FrontDesk
30:59
If an employee misses many days, but you have not been given proof they have the virus, when do you have to pay sick leave?
Laura
31:01
So if we are under 50 and therefore do not have to provide FMLA are we exempt from this
NJSnider
32:26
If a construction employee gets covid-19 on the job do they qualify for work comp?
Christopher’s iPhone
32:37
if an employee is furloughed do we need to allow them to use sick or vacation time?
EFlannery
32:41
Will these presentation slides be available after this presentation?
Roberta
32:49
What happens if we send the employee home because they are sick? do we pay out the sick pay and then after 10 days pay according to the FMLA?
FrontDesk
32:50
Do they have to give you a DRs note in some of these reasons?
Christopher’s iPhone
33:26
so this is only for employees who test positive for COVID 19?
Rhonda Woodruff
33:43
Can we require a Drs note?
Rhonda Woodruff
35:11
What exactly do we need for Tax break for this paid time?
stevep
35:25
If a household member has symptom of COVID - 19, should they self-quarantine and qualify for sick-leave

Thank you for keeping us posted on it
Racel
39:24
The biggest issue is trying to stay in business in light of the economic impacts to business. Businesses need help now verses a tax credit this time next year. Any relief in sight? We are concerned about having enough revenue in order to pay these benefits.
FrontDesk
40:04
What if we as the employer does not offer FMLA?
CEC
40:17

Elis
41:17
Is this webinar being recorded? I got kicked out a few things and have missed good information. Can you share the slides deck and recordings?
rjivan
42:02
If an employee needs traditional FMLA for a non-COVID issue, is that in addition to the 12 weeks for COVID?
Cinamon
42:11
Yes, all materials will be posted.
Roberta
42:26
Does this mean that we do not have to pay out the sick leave until 04/02?
ricky
43:38
Can you lay someone off who is on leave or must you make your reduction of force with working employees?
rjivan
45:08
Most of our employees are saying they cannot get in to see a dr and are being told over the phone to self-quarantine. How do they provide documentation?
johnh

How do you apply for the small business exception?

michaelarchuleta

Can you lay someone off who is on leave or must you make your reduction of force with working employees?
Scott Deering
47:55
I am concerned that if DOL were to exempt all employers with <50 employees, those of us with <50 employees that wish to comply with the mandates we would not be refunded via the tax credits.
Rhonda Woodruff
48:38
You do not have to reinstate an employee if they use the EFMLA?

johnh
53:13
What about time employees took off prior to April 2nd?
johnh
54:27
...time off due to the CV
Matt Newman
54:53
If someone notified you they are sick, can you just lay them off? Or if you lay them off, can they get this payment out of the business on their way out?
Teresa Smith IMA
55:17
Thanks for this most informative material!
CEC
56:01
Does the 80 hours of sick leave for companies 1-499 go into effect on April 2nd?
Shilo
56:43
If you are a small business w/ 50 or fewer employees and it would pose a hardship to pay emergency FMLA or sick leave, do you refer your employee to file for unemployment?
Rhonda Woodruff
56:45
Can you furlough someone out on self isolation if they’ve already taken Paid sick time for possible Covid19?
mattw
57:37
i saw the Tax Credit is capped at $200 per day per worker? That is gross wages at 8 hour day for a $25 per hour employee? Does the employer eat the amount over this, along with the Quarterly Cash Flow issue of delayed reimbursent?
Jessica Krause
57:58
UNION EMPLOYEES _ Would all benefits have to be paid on these hours and would union dues still be withheld? Any specific guidance on unions? Typical union shops would layoff employees when they don't have the jobs. How does this affect those businesses?
mattw
59:03
related to what is being talked about, is this a Workmans Comp issue if an employee claims they got sick at work?
Rhonda Woodruff

Matt Newman

What if you lay someone off and on the same day they tell you they have COVID. Do you need to pay them these benefits, or did the layoff happen first?
Roberta
01:05:37
What happens if we send the employee home because they are not feeling well and taking medications to treat their symptoms
Racel
01:06:13
Medical benefits unfortunately do not cover Telemedicine approaches. Its good for documentation. However, the cost will need to be covered by the employee.
steve.beaudoin
01:06:34
where can we go to get this new info
stevep
01:07:18
Union benefits generally are based on hours worked.. if no hours worked the benefit would be 0

small business exception details are unavailable. the DOL regulations should be out soon.
bross
01:09:52
Act is effective April 2, so leave before that time does not qualify unless upcoming regulations say otherwise.
Sabrina Lahti
01:10:48
Can you explain FMLA please? From the US Dept of Labor website is explains FMLA as: The FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. So employers would be required to pay out employees the 80 hours of PAID leave under the Emergency Paid Sick Leave . Why do the next 10 weeks have to be paid if the FMLA is UNPAID leave?
Rhonda Woodruff
