Duvi, President Trump recently signed into law Phase 2 of the legislative efforts to combat the Wuhan-Corona Virus, that includes provisions providing for expanded family and medical leave for employees impacted by this health crisis. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) within the US Department of Labor is the agency in the federal government that will enforce these new and temporary provisions (which expire on December 31, 2020).
We are seeking the constructive input of important, faith-based groups such as the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce to ensure the rules are fair to employers while at the same time beneficial to employees. We are all in this battle together and the expertise of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce is needed to ensure we have success in this endeavor.
