Coronavirus has had an impact on the ability of businesses to perform. It is prudent for businesses to review the information that may have lasting results on their relationships impacted by this pandemic.


New FFCRA Paid Leave Poster Must Be Posted by Wednesday, April 1

The US Department of Labor (DOL) has provided employers with a few pieces of guidance recently (which IMA has recapped here) regarding the two new paid leave requirements under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). This includes a new paid leave poster to provide to employees by Wednesday, April 1. This is required of all employers with fewer than 500 employees as of the date an employee’s covered emergency leave would begin, and is also required of all employers in the public sector regardless of size.

Read these FAQs for employers with guidance on posting the new notice

  • The notice needs to be displayed with all of your other required federal notices, in a conspicuous place where employees can see it.
  • If employees must report to your main office headquarters each morning and then go off to work at your different worksite locations, and they are able to see it at the main office, it is not necessary to display the notice at your different worksite locations. Otherwise, where you have employees reporting directly to work in several different buildings, you must post all required federal notices in each building, even if the buildings are located in the same general vicinity (e.g., in an industrial park or on a campus).
  • If all of your employees regularly visit the lunchroom, then you can post all required notices there. If not, then you can post the notices in the break rooms on each floor or in another location where they can easily be seen by employees on each floor.
  • For the portion of your workforce that is teleworking, you can “post” this notice by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee intranet or employee information external website.
  • You are not required to provide the poster in other languages, but the DOL is translating it now for interested employers.
  • The Spanish language poster is already available:
