Senate Passes Coronavirus Response Bill, Sends to President

The United States Senate today passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act and sent it to President Trump’s desk.  The President is expected to sign the bill into law this week.

The bill, which provides for paid sick leave and expanded family leave for certain employees for coronavirus-related reasons, passed the Senate without substantive changes.  The House initially passed the bill on Friday night, but made technical corrections to it late Monday.

For full details on how the legislation may affect employers, see our previous coverage of the bill here and here.
