Reading Time: 2 minutesWhile we patiently await more information and clarifications from the Department of Labor (DOL) on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), there were some important pieces of guidance released by the DOL this week related to the paid leave due to COVID-19 issues. Here is some of the latest guidance, and action required for employers: Effective Date. The paid leave provisions take effect on April 1, 2020 and end on December 31, 2020. The provisions of the law apply to leave taken within this time period. Paid leave taken prior to April 1 is not provided under FFCRA and cannot be counted against the Act’s leave claims. The IRS has stated, though, that leave taken prior to April 1 will still count toward tax credits available under the Act. Employee Rights Notice – Poster. The employment poster provided by the DOL is required to be displayed either in a “conspicuous place” in the workplace, on an “employee information internal or external website”, or emailed/mailed to all current employees, by April 1, 2020.
