Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)

Employers Required to Post Employee Rights Notice Under FFRCA

As employers continue to weather the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”) has issued some guidance to help businesses and employees understand the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”).

Employers may satisfy this requirement by posting the notice in a conspicuous place on their premises, emailing or mailing the notice to employees directly, or posting it on an employee intranet or external website by April 1, 2020. 

The agency also published a series of frequently asked questions about the required FFCRA notice, which can be accessed here
