VCCCD Employees,

On March 18, 2020, the U.S. Congress passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFRCA).  For California public agencies, including K-12 school districts and colleges, the FFRCA includes two provisions that may impact employees affected by the COVID-19 pandemic:  the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (“Emergency FMLA”).  These provision become effective today, April 1, 2020, and expire on December 31, 2020. Please see the links below for more information. 

We recognize that everyone is experiencing this life altering situation differently.  We are continuously amazed at the commitment to your work and your resilience during these difficult times.  Please know that your Human Resources team is here to assist you with any questions you may have.  

We thank you for your patience as we navigate through this new way of doing business, and look forward to working with you and to better times ahead.
