The original regulation and the frequently asked questions released by the DOL state that the first ten days of absence due to caring for children who's school or daycare is closed indicates the leave will be the employee's regular wages, up to a maximum of $200 per day. However the document found here: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic/ffcra-employer-paid-leave and the DOL's poster states that the first ten days of absence due to caring for children who's school or daycare is closed indicates the leave will be paid at 2/3rds of the employee's regular wages, up to a maximum of $200 per day. The DOL needs to clarify this discrepancy as quickly as possible.
