Poster Requirements for Families First Coronavirus Response Act

By April 1, when the new federal paid sick/leave law (Families First Coronavirus Response Act or “FFCRA”) takes effect, employers with less than 500 employees need to post the notice below in a conspicuous place at work. 

Even if in a state with greater protections, employers must comply with both federal and state law. View the FFCRA Notice.

If your facility is closed right now, emailing or direct mailing the notice to employees, or posting the notice on an employee information internal or external website will suffice.

A list of FAQs regarding this poster has been provided by the Department of Labor and can be found here.

Visit our COVID-19 Resource Center for more information.
