COVID-19 AND THE AMERICAN WORKPLACEUPDATED POSTERS
UPDATE: Please download the updated posters at the links below. We apologize for the inconvenience. We are updating information from the Department of Labor as we get it in an effort to bring you the latest most up-to-date information possible.
The Wage and Hour Division has been providing information on common issues employers and employees face when responding 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).
FFCRA will help the United States combat and defeat COVID-19 by giving all American businesses with fewer than 500 employees funds to provide employees with paid leave, either for the employee’s own health needs or to care for family members. The legislation will ensure that workers are not forced to choose between their paychecks and the public health measures needed to combat the virus while at the same time reimbursing businesses.
The FFCRA Notice Posters describing the rules and parameters of the FFCRA are required to be posted in your workplace.Download the posters below and print for your workplace or send them electronically to your employees.
