Previous installments of our series analyzing in detail the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the regulations interpreting that law issued by the US Department of Labor addressed the following issues:

  • Part One – employee eligibility and employer coverage;
  • Part Two – the coronavirus-specific circumstances why eligible employees may take paid leave;
  • Part Three – the rules that apply to employees’ use of emergency paid sick leave and public health emergency paid family leave; and
  • Part Four – how employers calculate the amount of pay to be provided as paid FFCRA leave.

In this final installment, we close out our analysis of the FFCRA by discussing what happens at the end of FFCRA leave, including employee job restoration rights, and the protections in the law against discrimination and retaliation.
