Today, the Wage and Hour Division of the United States Department of Labor ("DOL") issued the required federal notice pursuant to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act ("FFRCA") (WH1422 REV 03/20). Effective immediately, the notice must be posted by all covered employers in a conspicuous place in the workplace. This requirement can be satisfied by distributing the notice to employees via email, direct mailing, or by posting the notice on an employee information internal or external website. It is recommended that covered employers, which generally include all employers with fewer than 500 employees, both physically post the notice in the workplace and distribute the notice to employees via one of the aforementioned methods. Doing so will help to ensure compliance with the FFRCA's notice requirements.
The notice can be found here.
It is critical to understand the FFCRA in order to ensure adherence to its provisions, including those set forth under the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act and the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act.
