3.26.2020 New DOL Posters Required to be published for the Families First Coronovaris Response Act
Yesterday, March 25, 2020, the Department of Labor ("DOL") made available posters regarding Employee Rights for paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act ("Act"). These notices, which are available online for download here, are required to be posted by all businesses covered by the Act. This includes many of my clients who are small business owners.
The DOL also answered many FAQs regarding the posters here. In addition to posting it with the other required notices, it would be good to also email it to all your current employees.
These posters might be updated and you should frequently check for new requirements here. As always, reach out to your attorney if you have questions about your obligations under this.
The CDC has also made available helpful posters and other print resources for your business here.
These are trying times, but that doesn't mean you are alone.
