In the United States the FFCRA act provides employees paid sick leave if they become sick with COVID-19, are seeking a diagnosis, or have been ordered to quarantine by a medical professional. The act also provides paid leave in the event that the employee needs to care for others due to circumstances related to COVID-19.

There are many FAQs on the Department of Labor website discussing which employees are eligible for the different leave types provided under FFCRA and what their rates of pay will be, but I can find no answers related to my exact question, namely;

If an employee takes the maximum two weeks of FFCRA sick leave, and then switches jobs, is there anything preventing them from taking an additional two weeks of FFCRA sick leave in their new position once they meet the eligibility requirement?
