The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires that employers post a notice advising employees of their rights under the new law. The United States Department of Labor has now published the poster that employers are required to post regarding the new emergency paid sick leave and family medical leave requirements. A copy of the poster can be found here.
The DOL explains that employers can satisfy the posting requirement for employees who are working at home by emailing or mailing the notice to employees. The DOL FAQ states:
- Where do I post this notice? Since most of my workforce is teleworking, where do I electronically “post” this notice? Each covered employer must post a notice of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises. 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.
