As the great work-from-home experiment extends into the summer, many have found the change to be less disruptive than expected—despite having to make the switch seemingly overnight. While it certainly has its challenges (toddler-age colleagues included), overall, we are adapting and experiencing the benefits of virtual work firsthand, particularly those of us with long commutes or who perform better outside of a busy office environment. Employers are taking note and beginning to embrace remote work as a viable option. Several leading companies have already announced their intention to keep a portion of their workforce remote, possibly forever.
A federal court in New York recently struck down four federal Department of Labor (DOL) rules related to the leaves provided by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). As a result, certain aspects of the FFCRA are now more favorable to employees. Unfortunately, it’s not clear if the ruling applies nationwide or only in the Southern District of New York, where that court is located. Until there is further activity in the case—which may clarify whether the rules remain intact throughout the rest of the country—we recommend that employers err on the side of caution when administering FFCRA leaves and assume these particular rules no longer apply.
