Grounds for Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL):
The amount of sick pay, if you qualify for EPSL, is based on the reason for your leave and your pay. The FFCRA provides up to a total maximum of ten work days of emergency paid sick leave to each employee to the extent that the employee is unable to work for one of the six reasons listed below:

  1. The employee is subject to a Federal, State, or local quarantine or isolation order related to COVID-19

  6. The employee is experiencing any other substantially similar condition specified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Labor.

Grounds for Emergency Family and Medical Leave (EFML):
Employees are eligible for emergency family and medical leave if they have been employed by the District for at least thirty calendar days.  EFML is part of the FMLA, and is therefore subject to the same 12-week maximum for all FMLA leave (including EFML). EFML can be used when the employee is:

  1. Employee is unable to work (or telework) due to a need for leave to care for the son or daughter under 18 years of age of such employee if the school or place of care has been closed, or the child care provider of such son or daughter is unavailable, due to . . . an emergency with respect to COVID-19 declared by a Federal, State, or local authority
