Aegir’s COVID-19 Policies
The Federal Government signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) which took effect on April 1, 2020 and lasts through December 31, 2020. The federal government will provide additional Sick Pay to employees subject to quarantine or isolation orders from Federal, State, or Local governments due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please see the poster issued by the U.S. Department of Labor.
There are six qualifying reasons for using the government provided Sick Pay. There are also six new leave charge numbers in the timesheet program which correspond to the qualifying reasons. If you have a qualifying reason, please send me an email with justification for using the government provided Sick Pay and let me know which Sick Pay account number you will be charging. Below are the government provided reasons and the corresponding leave account number to use on the timesheets.
