Can an employee take leave under both the EPSLA and the EFMLA because a child’s school is closed?

Yes. First, the employee may take two weeks of paid leave under the sick leave provisions of the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA) and Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLEA) at two-thirds of the employee’s regular rate of pay. Second, the employee would take the ten weeks of paid leave available under the expanded leave provisions at two-thirds of the employee’s regular rate of pay.
