What You Need to Know About the Families First Coronavirus Response Act

by Human Resources

Human Resources is working diligently to bring our campus community accurate information about the recently enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) that went into effect April 1, 2020. The Act provides paid leave to employees who meet specific criteria in relation to how they have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of FAQs along with other resources to help you sort out the details of many options for paid leave made available under the Act. We recognize that every situation is unique. You can use this short quiz to get information on specific FFCRA options that apply to your individual circumstances. 

As always, discussing options with your supervisor is an important first step. If you have questions, we’re here to help call 7-2280 or email megoke@mtu.edu.
