Is all leave under the FMLA now paid leave?

No. The only type of FMLA leave that is paid leave is Expanded FMLA leave under the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLA) when such leave exceeds two weeks. This includes only leave taken by an employee who is unable to fulfil the obligations of their work because the employee must care for their child whose school or place of care is closed, or child care provider is unavailable, due to COVID-19 related reasons.
