No. The FMLA’s terms and definitions remain the same. The new law simply adds a provision that addresses the unique needs of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of April 1st, City employees may take FMLA leave for “a qualifying need related to a public health emergency” (i.e., the coronavirus). Meanwhile, other qualifying reasons for FMLA leave remain unchanged (e.g., serious health condition, military caregiver, baby bonding, etc.).
