Dept. of Labor issues COVID-19 guidance to employers and employees
Updated: Apr 1, 2020
The Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor has issued guidance for employers and employees to provide information and answers to common questions related to COVID-19 and its effects on wages and hours worked under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), job-protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
The FFCRA requires all employers with fewer than 500 employees to post in their places of business a notice informing employees about their rights to expanded paid sick leave and expanded leave under the Family Medical Leave Act. The DOL has created posters for this purpose. The posters can be found at this link.
