The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) is now in effect through December 31, 2020. If you haven’t already posted this notice or distributed it to employees electronically, it’s not too late. Here is a link to the poster https://www.dol.gov/sites/dolgov/files/WHD/posters/FFCRA_Poster_WH1422_Non-Federal.pdf and some FAQs from the Department of Labor’s (DOL) website that you’ll find helpful, no matter your industry or company size. The full FAQ about posting this notice can be found here https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic/ffcra-poster-questions
- Where do I post this notice?
Each covered employer must post a notice of the FFCRA requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises. An employer may satisfy this requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees who are teleworking, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website.
- Do I have to post this notice in other languages spoken by my employees?
Employers are not required to post this notice in multiple languages, but the DOL is working to translate it into other languages.
- Do I have to share this notice with recently laid-off individuals?
No, the FFCRA requirements apply only to current employees.
- I am a small business owner. Do I have to post this notice?
Yes. All employers covered by the paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave provisions of the FFCRA (i.e., private sector employers with fewer than 500 employees) must post this notice.
- Do we have to post this notice at each work location?
The notice needs to be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees can see it. If they are able to see it at the main office, it is not necessary to display the notice at your different worksite locations. If employees are not traveling to the main office, the employer must post all required federal notices in each building.
When must I post the notice?
April 1, 2020. But if you accidentally missed this deadline, get it in your employee’s hands ASAP.
