Clients and Friends:
The Department of Labor (DOL) has issued the model notice for Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). This notice should be posted with other required Federal notices. Click here for the FFCRA poster.
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act – Frequently Asked Questions states that until an employer is able to physically post the notice, an employer may satisfy this requirement by:
- emailing the notice to employees
- direct mailing the notice to employees
- posting the notice on an employee information internal or external website
If essential personnel are working during this time, Liberty recommends having the supervisor post the notice with your other required federal notices, if possible.
Per the DOL guidance, employers do not need to share the notice with laid-off individuals since it applies only to current employees.
