Justworks Launches New Tool to Help Businesses Offer COVID-19-Related Paid Leave

Justworks | April 03, 2020

Justworks, the nation's fastest-growing HR technology company, announced the launch of a new tool to help its customers navigate the COVID-19-related paid leave newly mandated by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Congress passed the FFCRA in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Its paid leave provisions went into effect on April 1, 2020. Small businesses across the country are already using the tool to schedule and provide paid leave to their employees who have been impacted by COVID-19, as well as automatically claim the applicable tax credits directly in the Justworks platform. The FFCRA requires businesses with fewer than 500 employees to provide their employees with paid leave for qualifying reasons related to COVID-19. The FFCRA also allows employers to claim payroll tax credits to cover the cost of this required leave. With its rapid legislative response, however, Congress unintentionally created a massive administrative burden downstream for the employers trying to implement these new worker protections. With Justworks, businesses can seamlessly schedule COVID-19-related paid leave, keep their employees on payroll, and claim the applicable tax credits offered by the government to pay for their leave in full.

History in many ways is what aspires growth. What did it take to end great empires? What did it take to revolutionize change, to invent the wheel? The past is forever a god of infinite wisdom to learn from. The relatively archaic time between 500 BCE – 475 BCE noted the rise and demise of one of history’s darkest philosophers, so-called because of his hard to understand writings. Little did we realize that in his words echoed wisdom reflective of the world of today, wisdom that continues to baffle.
