Leave policies built specifically for COVID-19
GoCo’s built-in leave policies for both Emergency Paid Sick Leave and E-FMLA ensure you’re tracking leave requests in compliance with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The FFCRA requires:
Emergency Family Sick Leave
Employees must be given Paid Sick Leave if they are unable to work due to COVID-19.
Emergency Family Medical Leave Act
Employees must be given EFMLA leave if they need to take care of a child and cannot work due to COVID-19.
GoCo gives you everything you need to track and implement a COVID-19 paid leave policy.
GoCo’s leave management software calculates the correct amount of leave for each type of employee for both Emergency Paid Sick Leave and EFMLA.
GoCo’s COVID-19 leave tracking software will ask the employee to provide the correct documentation data for each type of leave request.
Employees are required to select one or more of the reasons required by the government to request leave related to COVID-19.
Leave requests are routed to Company Admins to review and approve. Any last minute adjustments to the request can be made and documented.
The employee’s hire date must be 30 days or more in the past before they can request EFMLA.
No Balance Carry-Overs
The paid time off given will not carry over to the next year. All time given will expire on Dec 31, 2020, per the regulations.
Paid vs Non-Paid Time Off
The first 10 days of Emergency Paid Sick Leave is unpaid. GoCo’s sick leave tracking feature will help you keep track of the Paid vs Unpaid balances.
Reports for Payroll
GoCo keeps track of all the leave taken, and generates a report that you can use to run payroll. If you’re using Embedded Payroll with GoCo, those hours are automatically imported to Payroll for you.
Digital Employee Rights Notice
Send the required Employee Rights to your entire team digitally. Have them view and acknowledge they received it and keep an audit trail for compliance.
GoCo helped us improve our relationship with our employees because they started to see that we were taking steps to ensure that they were being treated properly, and that they were receiving the attention that they needed.
One stop source for employee on-boarding, HR information, and benefit information – previously was scattered across multiple systems. We’ve gained a ton of capacity on our team by not having to manually process so many issues.
I love the fact that not only does it integrate with our Slack platform – it is very comprehensive as far as managing our HR systems. It keeps our team organized – we can see benefits, documents, vacation and other time off requests in one place. It makes our new employee onboarding a breeze!
I love GoCo, and I adore their customer success team, because they are really who have made the experience all that it is for me.
