    In the first installment of this five-part series exploring the US Department of Labor (DOL) regulations (29 CFR Part 826) interpreting the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), we summarized which employees are eligible to take, and which employers are required to provide, emergency paid sick leave or emergency paid family leave under the FFCRA. In this second installment, we take a closer look at the reasons why an employee might take job-protected leave under the FFCRA and what proof an employer may request to determine employee eligibility.
