Who exactly is an ‘essential’ employer?

08/21/2020

Q: "I cannot find a 'definitive' list of essential employers on the DOL site re: Covid. Is a commercial cleaning company (who sanitizes offices, etc., and has less than 50 employees) considered an essential employer? And, if so, are they exempt from the paid sick leave/FMLA mandate per FFCRA? But, they could take the option to pay employees the EPLSA (if for Covid reasons) and then qualify to take a tax credit for the amount of wages paid, yes?" - Ann, Texas
