The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires each "covered" employer to post a notice advising employees of its provisions in a conspicuous place on its premises. This notice must be posted before April 2, 2020, which is the date that the FFCRA becomes effective.
The United States Department of Labor ("DOL"), which prepared the model notice, advises that an "employer may satisfy this requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website." This advice from the DOL is particularly directed to those employers who have employees who are teleworking or who are away from the employer's premises. This additional notice provides increased assurance that all employees are notified.
Employers may obtain notices free of charge by contacting the DOL Wage and Hour Division at 1-866-4-USWAGE (1-866-487-9243). Employers may also download and print the notice from https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/posters
