Create Timesheets for COVID-19 Pay

Create a separate timesheet group for employees affected by COVID-19.

This timesheet group is separate from the one you create for a specific pay period and should only apply to those affected.
In the wake of COVID-19, government acts were instated to take care of those affected by the pandemic. The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) provides an extension to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Under these specific circumstances, emergency sick leave and expanded family leave are subject to employer social security tax.
