The Office of Congressional Workplace Rights provides information on common issues employing offices and covered employees in the Legislative Branch face when responding to COVID-19, and its effects on wages and hours worked under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), job-protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
 
The FFCRA will help provide employees with paid leave either for covered employee’s own health needs or to care for family members. The legislation will ensure that covered employees are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus.
