Join the National Council of Nonprofits for a free webinar with speakers from the Department of Labor covering paid leave law.

New Law on COVID-19 Paid Leave & Back to School | What Nonprofit Employers Need to Know to Comply

In one of its earliest COVID-related acts, Congress mandated that most employers must provide paid leave to employees who need time off for their own health or to care for a family member. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued regulations in a matter of weeks, but the economy-wide shutdown, subsequent legislation, and a federal court decision generated confusion and many questions. DOL recently released new clarifying regulations for employers, including nonprofits.


To help nonprofits with employees gain a better understanding of paid leave requirements, the National Council of Nonprofits is offering a free webinar this Thursday, September 24 at 3 p.m. On the webinar, speakers from DOL will walk participants through the requirements of the laws; explain which employees and employers are covered and which are exempt; discuss the concept of intermittent family leave in the context of schools reopening; and address the recent federal court decision and changes to DOL regulations.
