It’s August, which usually means back to school shopping and stretching out the long summer days. In 2020, employers, and the parents they employ, find themselves scrambling as the new school year approaches—but for entirely different reasons—the potential of facing an entire year of online learning.

The State of California recently issued guidance for schools to reopen for in-person instruction, but several large districts have announced they will start the school year with remote learning. While the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), passed in March, provided paid leave for those affected by COVID-19, including those caring for minor children due to school and childcare closures, many parents have exhausted their leave benefits. Join Jackson Lewis as we discuss how employers and employees can balance remote work and remote learning.
