Employer Requirements During Coronavirus Pandemic

As an employer, display the Department of Labor (DOL) poster regarding employee rights under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).  This must be posted in a prominent place in your office, accessible to all employees.  If some of your employees are not usually in the office, or are working from home, I would suggest emailing a copy to them and requesting confirmation of receipt. This should satisfy the requirements for notifying employees.

Below are links to the Department of Labor and Treasury Department web pages related to the Coronavirus.  It would be advisable to check these often over the next several weeks to stay up-to-date on any future legislation, as well as any updates on implementing the various provisions of the FFCRA.  There is a lot we do not know yet because the details have not been developed or published, so stay tuned for more.
