Does my farm have to provide COVID-related paid sick leave to workers? Answers and Issues
Broadcast Date:May 06, 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, more and more farms are wrestling with whether and when to provide paid sick leave to workers. This webinar explores a farm's legal obligations under federal law, whether workers are sick from COVID-19 or another illness. We discuss farm obligations to provide sick leave to parents who stay home to care for children, and how the law relates to undocumented or H2A workers. Don't worry: there are exceptions and a tax credit is available to offset the costs of sick leave.
