DOL Releases Families First Coronavirus Response Act Posters

By Michelle D. Wyrick

On March 25, 2020, the Department of Labor (“DOL”) issued notices that employers must post to comply with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”).  The DOL has issued one notice for covered private sector employers, which can be found on its website here.  A separate poster for federal government employers can be found here.

The DOL has also posted Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQs”) about the FFCRA’s notice requirement, which can be found on the DOL’s website here.  The FAQs provide useful information, including:

Where do I post this notice? Since most of my workforce is teleworking, where do I electronically “post” this notice?

Each covered employer must post a notice of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises. An employer may satisfy this requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website.
