The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) takes effect on April 1, 2020 and will apply through December 31, 2020.
FFCRA requires certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. The Department of Labor’s (Department) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) administers and enforces the new law’s paid leave requirements.
The paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave provisions of the FFCRA apply to certain public employers, and private employers with fewer than 500 employees. FFCRA requires all employers with fewer than 500 employees to display the poster.
