September 28 Tip of the Week

The IRS issued guidance to employers regarding the proper reporting of employee use of leave under the FFCRA.  Employers must report to employees the sick leave wages or family leave wages the employee was paid in Box 14 of the W-2 or in an attached statement.  Sick leave wages and family leave wages must be reported separately, and each type of leave used must be labeled appropriately.  For more information about how to properly report FFCRA leave, contact our attorneys at myHRcounsel for guidance.  You can also read the Notice from the IRS here.
