The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) separately released a FAQ devoted solely to an employer’s posting obligations under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Each covered employer must post a notice (available in English and Spanish) of the FFCRA requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises. Where an employer has employees reporting directly to work in several different buildings, the employer must post all required federal notices in each building, even if the buildings are located in the same general vicinity.
If most of the employee’s workforce is teleworking, an employer may satisfy the posting requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting the notice on an employer website.
All new hires hired after the effective date and before the FCCRA’s sunset on December 31, 2020, should receive notice of their rights under the FCCRA at the time of hire.
