Guidance on Workforce Challenges Due to Schools Remaining Closed to In-Person Learning

OMA Connections Partner Thompson Hine has published this new guidance to address workforce challenges related to back-to-school season. According to the firm, “Those who work for employers with 500 or fewer employees may be entitled to up to 12 weeks of paid child care leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. While some employees may have exhausted all 12 weeks of eligible leave during the spring, those who still have leave remaining may use it if their child’s school remains closed (or partially closed) to in-person learning this fall.” 8/19/2020
