Following the passage earlier this week of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA or Act), the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued new posters to notify employees of the paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave options available to them for specified reasons related to COVID-19.

A covered employer1 must post the FFCRA notice in a conspicuous place in the main area of its premises by April 1, 2020. To reach workers who may be working remotely at this time, electronic communication of the FFCRA posters is sufficient. The DOL’s notice requirements pertain only to current employees and new hires. Job applicants and employees who have been laid off are not included in the employer’s obligation. Unlike other posting requirements, the FFCRA notice does not need to be translated into languages other than English, however the DOL hopes to have versions in several languages available soon.

Digital downloads of the DOL’s FFCRA posters, along with corresponding fact sheets, are available now here and below.
