On March 24, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor ("DOL") issued its first form of guidance on the leave provision contained in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act ("FFCRA") passed last week. The DOL notes that it will also be promulgating official new regulations in the coming days. The entire DOL Q&A is linked here: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic/ffcra-questions.
I love when a movie comes out that makes me smarter, even without watching it. A good example is The Black Swan. I had never heard of such a thing and had no idea what it symbolized before Fox bombed the airwaves with commercials featuring dark, elegant-looking shots of Natalie Portman in ominous poses. Intrigued, I looked up the metaphorical use of a black swan in literature and film. I learned that a black swan represents an event that surprises the observer, has a major effect on the observer and others, which is usually negative, but is often inappropriately rationalized in hindsight.
