E-FMLA is a job-protected paid leave at two-thirds the employee’s regular rate of pay where an employee, who has
been employed for at least 30 calendar days, is unable to work due to a bona fide need for leave to care for a child
whose school or child care provider is closed or unavailable for reasons related to COVID-19. The paid expanded leave
is in addition to EPSL. SPECIAL NOTE: The E-FMLA is not in addition to existing 12-week leave entitlement under
FMLA. Therefore, if an employee has already used all or a portion of their 12-week entitlement of FMLA leave for
another qualifying reason, the employee is only entitled to use the remaining balance for qualifying reasons under E-
FMLA.
