NEW! FFCRA Compliance Assistance Tools

In loco parentis definition

Under FFCRA, health care providers and emergency responders may be exempted from leave so are still actively working in situations where they could be exposed to COVID-19. As a result, many of these workers have sent their children to live with other family members temporarily to protect them from exposure. These family members are not assuming the role of a parent as is required for in loco parentis. This is a temporary situation, similar to visiting family over the summer break. However, these family members now may have a need for leave due to school/child care closure. Is there any intent that these family members be provided leave under some kind of broader in loco parentis definition?
