The US Department of Labor has just clarified that parents of adult
children who have lost their usual source of care due to COVID-19 may
receive Paid Leave to stay home to care for their adult children just as
parents of children up to age 18 may stay home to care for their child who
has lost their usual source of care due to school or childcare closings or
inability of childcare providers to come to the home to care for their
child . The US Department of Labor has finally determined that the
definition of "son or daughter" for the new program should be consistent
with that of the existing Family and Medical Leave Act, which "expressly
includes children 18 years of age or older and incapable of self-care
because of a mental or physical disability."
