Meeting HR6201 Mandates

How do you stay in compliance with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (HR6201) and ensure your business and employees are covered? We walk you through it step by step in this guide.

What do you need to know about HR6201? 

The introduction of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (HR6201) created new Emergency Paid Sick Leave and Emergency Family and Medical Leave entitlements for employees working for organizations with less than 500 people. Zenefits has swiftly aligned teams to ensure our People Operations Platform allows customers to comply with these new mandates. 

Updates to the platform allow companies to provide the proper EPSL and EFMLA allocations, pay employees at the correct rates, and recoup the maximum tax credits allowed through the IRS to keep their business running. 

  • Time tracking updates allow employees to easily choose from the appropriate sick leave ‘reasons,’ when utilizing EPSL, which allows admins to simply track and distribute the proper pay rates for all employees during this time.
  • A pre-built template makes it easy to align with the nuances of Emergency Family and Medical Leave mandated through HR6201.
  • Streamline record keeping, so admins are always on top of EFMLA and can maximize the payroll for their business and their employees.
  • Easy, simplified, digital tracking allows admins to aggregate the maximum rates they’ve been paying employees utilizing EPSL and EFMLA so they can easily recoup those funds via tax credits provided by the IRS
