DOL issues a Families First Coronavirus Response Act poster
The Department of Labor (DOL) has created a poster highlighting paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Employers must post this notice “in a conspicuous place on its premises,” such as an employee break room or other common space.
Given that many organizations have transitioned to remote work environments in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DOL clarified that 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.” Additionally, if employees are able to see the notice at an employer’s main office, then it is not necessary to also display the notice at the employer’s different worksite locations.
Employers can access the most up-to-date version of the poster here.
