Pursuant to the provisions of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) Johnson County Community College (JCCC) will provide employees with expanded medical leave and paid sick leave for reasons related to COVID-19 from April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020

Emergency Family and Medical Leave (EFMLA)

A JCCC employee, who has been employed at least thirty (30) days, and is unable to work or telework due to the need for leave to care for a minor child (18 years or younger) if school has closed and/or a childcare provider (other than a family member) is unavailable, shall be entitled to 12 weeks of job protected EFMLA leave:

  • The first 10 days of EFMLA are unpaid
  • The remaining 10 weeks of EFMLA are payable at of the employee’s regular rate of pay

In the case of an employee paid on an hourly basis, EFMLA will be paid based upon the number of hours the employee is regularly scheduled to work.

An employee may choose to use sick leave, vacation, personal annual leave or emergency paid sick leave during the first 10 days of EFMLA.

EFMLA leave does not expand an employee’s eligible entitlement (maximum of 12 weeks) under the Family Medical Leave Act. Use of qualifying leave under the EFMLA counts toward the 12-week entitlement under the other.

If you believe you qualify for EFMLA, please contact one of the listed individuals shown below.
