Department of Labor Issues Additional Guidance Regarding the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA)The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has now published materials to aid employers in ensuring compliance with this new law, including questions and answers, and the required workplace poster.

Updated DOL FFCRA Notice/Poster
The Department of Labor has issued the Families First Coronavirus Response Act notice/poster. Unfortunately, the first version the DOL issued had a slight error, so the DOL issued a corrected poster to clear up the confusion. You can download the correct version here. The DOL also issued FAQs regarding the notice, which can be found here. Covered employers should post this notice at their workplaces no later than April 1 (the effective date of FFCRA). Additionally, for employers who have employees working remotely, the notice should be sent out by email or regular mail, or by posting it on the company intranet or website.

DOL Issues Additional FAQ on FFCRA
The DOL expanded its existing FAQ on the FFCRA — adding nearly 10 pages of content regarding the new requirements for paid sick leave (E-PSLA) and paid family medical leave (E-FMLA). You can download the Q&A here.
