One at One: Does Quarantine Qualify For Paid Sick Leave?
Posted May 11, 2020
If I cannot perform my work because I have been quarantined or I am caring for someone who has been quarantined due to COVID-19, do I qualify for any paid leave under the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act created by the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”)?
You may qualify for paid leave. Individuals who are unable to perform their work, either remotely or at the worksite, due to themselves, or someone they care for being 1) formally quarantined, 2) advised to self-quarantine, or 3) experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and seeking a diagnosis, can qualify for paid sick leave. The employer may require documentation from the employee proving that the employee qualifies for this benefit.
