Congress Passes COVID-19 Coronavirus Response Act.
On March 18, the Senate passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
This is designed to address the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on American families. It introduces a federal mandated paid sick leave and temporarily expands the Family and Medical Leave Act. For ACSI Christian schools this does apply; there is no exemption for private employers or nonprofits. This will go into effect on April 2 and expires December 31, 2020. It has two provisions that impact our Christian Schools.
