To date, the US government has passed three pieces of legislation to address various problems the coronavirus pandemic has caused. The first was a small funding bill (only in Washington is $8 billion small) that was designed to meet immediate needs in terms of testing and lowering treatment costs. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), the second piece of legislation, makes provision for paid sick or family leave for reasons related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Last is the $2 trillion economic package that should preserve much of the economy while we all shelter in place. These create new issues for employee benefits management and employee communications in general.
