  • Families First Coronavirus Response Act: Questions and Answers
    Updated On: Apr 07, 2020

    Please take a few minutes to read FAQ's about the Families First Act by clicking on the following link:

    In particular, since "emergency responders" are exempted from the Act, here is an excerpt from the link that describes how broadly a public agency may define "emergency responder".  If you have been designated as an emergency responder and don't believe it is appropriate contact your UPEC representative and we will sort it out with you.

    Who is an emergency responder?

    For the purposes of Employees who may be excluded from Paid Sick Leave or Expanded Family and Medical Leave by their Employer under the FFCRA, an emergency responder is anyone necessary for the provision of transport, care, healthcare, comfort and nutrition of such patients, or others needed for the response to COVID-19. This includes but is not limited to military or national guard, law enforcement officers, correctional institution personnel, fire fighters, emergency medical services personnel, physicians, nurses, public health personnel, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, emergency management personnel, 911 operators, child welfare workers and service providers, public works personnel, and persons with skills or training in operating specialized equipment or other skills needed to provide aid in a declared emergency, as well as individuals who work for such facilities employing these individuals and whose work is necessary to maintain the operation of the facility. This also includes any individual whom the highest official of a State or territory, including the District of Columbia, determines is an emergency responder necessary for that State’s or territory’s or the District of Columbia’s response to COVID-19. 
     
    To minimize the spread of the virus associated with COVID-19, the Department encourages employers to be judicious when using this definition to exempt emergency responders from the provisions of the FFCRA.
