Sept. 17, 2020: Following a New York federal court decision that vacated several aspects of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) regulations under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), DOL issued new regulations addressing employee leave eligibility and entitlement. Specifically, DOL narrowed its definition of who a “healthcare provider” is for purposes of being excluded by their employer from receiving FFCRA paid leave. In a departure from its previous definition, DOL stated that a person is not a healthcare provider merely because his or her employer provides healthcare services. Therefore, IT professionals, HR personnel, billers, building maintenance staff, and others are not considered healthcare providers within the meaning of the regulations and therefore are not eligible for exclusion from FFCRA leave. For more information on the revised regulations, reference DOL’s updated FAQ and MGMA’s updated FFCRA resource.
