Correction to required posting under Families First Coronavirus Response Act – effective April 1

By Christopher J. Graham and Joseph P. Kelly

We previously posted here about the required posting for employers with less than 500 employees under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

The Department of Labor issued a corrected poster (link here) to address an error in the original poster.

An employer meets the “posting” requirement by posting the poster “in a conspicuous place on its premises” or “by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website.” As a practical matter, the most efficient way for employers to meet the “posting” requirement likely is to email the corrected poster to its employees.

Remember – the “posting” deadline is April 1 and all employers with less than 500 employees must comply with the posting requirement!

Notwithstanding the “posting” requirement, for most employers, the new law will make a difference only if it has employees caring for children due to a school closure resulting from coronavirus and who don’t telework or if an employer has employees who become ill or quarantined because of coronavirus or care for others with coronavirus.

The Department of Labor issued a guidance (Fact Sheet for Employers, Fast Sheet for Employees, and Questions and Answers) that contain more information for affected employers.
