Updates Regarding Families First Coronavirus Response Act Date Change

Recently, the Department of Labor (DOL) began issuing guidance and posters regarding the upcoming Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which includes the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (EFMLA).

Most importantly, the initial start date has changed, and the FFCRA begins on April 1, 2020.  No this is not an April Fool’s Day joke!

The DOL recently updated its posters and questions and answers to address employee and employer questions. It is recommended you update and replace any already uploaded posters because the DOL updated the poster language.  The postings should be in place on or before April 1.

Outlined below are the issues raised in the March 26th DOL Q&A that reflect new guidance not already addressed by other publications or directly answered in the text of the FFCRA.
