Employers are not required to provide Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) leave after Dec. 31, 2020 but may voluntarily decide to do so according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

The obligation to provide FFCRA leave applies from the law's effective date of April 1, 2020, through Dec. 31, 2020, the DOL stated. Any change to extend the requirement to provide leave under the FFCRA would require an amendment to the law by Congress, the department observed, but there has been no such amendment.
