Families First Coronavirus Response Act to Impact Churches

Families First Coronavirus Response Act to Impact Churches

Last week Congress passed, and the President signed, a new law which will require many churches to increase paid leave for employees under certain circumstances. The law also provides for reimbursement of the cost of the required leave. 
We are still waiting to hear about many of the details. However, UCC General Counsel Heather Kimmel has provided a memorandum and summary chart to help explain the new law. There is also an excellent summary of what we know thus far available at the Church Law and Tax website here.

In addition, Heather Kimmel is offering a webinar for all UCC members this coming Tuesday, March 31, at 2 PM.  View a video of the webinar here.
Please send your questions about the new law to Dawn Hammond, Associate Conference Minister for Policy and Finance, at hammondd@sneucc.org. We will respond to questions and offer further information as we are able. Please do not send inquiries to Heather Kimmel, as she is unable to reply directly to local church questions.
