Last week we published an article on legislation that provides pay for frontline workers who worked during the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, we were not certain whether the frontline pay would apply to credit union employees. We’ve learned that credit union employees will not be eligible. During a MN Chamber of Commerce webinar on Monday, DoL staff clarified that the “banking industry is not an eligible frontline sector under the law.”
