On Friday, the Department of Labor ended its temporary non-enforcement of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. But, yesterday, it left employers with a little parting gift.
*The Employer Handbook neither guarantees nor represent that anything in today’s post explains ‘everything.’ Instead, in case you hadn’t figured it out already, the author of this blog loves clickbait
and Flaming Hot Cheetos. Nonetheless, we think you’re in for a treat today.
The President signed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act on March 18, 2020. In Section 5103 of the FFCRA (right here in the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act section), it says that “[n]ot later than 7 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Labor shall make publicly available a model of a notice that meets the requirements of [the Act].”
Yesterday, on March 25, 2020, we got the notice.
I can’t help but notice that many of you are confused about the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. A few of you with whom I have communicated have been getting different answers to the same question from different employment lawyers. And I know how frustrating that can be.
Today, I want to help clear up some confusion for you.
