If you are unable to work (or telework) for reasons due to a COVID-19 circumstance relating to lack of child care, you can request an FMLA leave and be paid at 2/3 your regular rate of pay, up to a maximum of $200 per day. Emergency FMLA is only available for use from April 1, 2020, through December 31, 2020, and only for a qualifying reason occurring during that period. FMLA is available for 12 weeks, with a two-week waiting period before you would be paid; however, the federal emergency sick days can be used for the waiting period.
For questions about Emergency FMLA, please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org. A form to request leave can be downloaded here:
