Was there an official program announced?

 

First you'd have to have a job then you would need a dr's slip you tested positive. So after your quarrantine is over, then you can file.

I heard today my cousins employer has enacted two week work from home schedule.

 

And those who are sick with this virus (or other sickness) are being paid and no sick time is charged.  I applaud this employer taking entire staff into consideration.  Of course, all employees have access to do their jobs remotely.

 

I hope all employers consider their employees and pay them.

The bill as proposed only covers employees so those in the gig economy like Uber, my hairdresser, etc are not covered.

 

Also, these days must be accrued. After a year, you'd have a week.

 

Appears to be dead on arrival as employers are only offered a tax credit after implementation.

I tried to find it in it's entirety and couldn't. I did find the legislation.
