In the first part of our in-depth analysis of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and its accompanying regulations, we addressed employer coverage and employee eligibility issues under the new law.   In the second installment of this series, we turn to looking at the coronavirus-specific reasons upon which an employee can obtain FFCRA leave, including a government quarantine order, the employee’s illness or seeking a medical diagnosis, the illness of a family member or other close relation, and caregiver and child care responsibilities.  We also examine the notice an employee must provide of the need for FFCRA leave, and what proof an employer can require an employee provide in order to support a request for leave under the FFCRA.
