My employee has exhausted time off under FMLA in the past 12 months. Does the FFCRA provide employees with additional leave?

An employee is entitled to a maximum of 12 weeks of protected leave per 12-months period, with 10 of the weeks paid under FFCRA if the leave is taken for FFCRA-qualifying purposes. The first two weeks are unpaid, but which could be covered by other paid leave.

An employee may choose, or an employer may require that an employee use this additional leave concurrently with any leave offered under the employer’s policies that would be available for the employee to take care of their children, such as vacation, personal leave, or paid time off.
