Families First Coronavirus Response Act - Posting Requirement for Employers

March 31, 2020 Articles

The recently enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”) requires private employers with fewer than 500 employees to post a notice by April 1 summarizing the benefits available to employees under the FFCRA. For employers who are working remotely, the notices can be sent via email or posted on an intranet site. 

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act requires certain employers to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The U.S. Department of Labor issued its model notice poster last week in English and Spanish.

The US Department of Labor also published frequently asked questions about the noticing requirement. To access the FAQs, please click below:
