Public officials and healthcare professionals are working swiftly to respond to and combat the COVID-19 threat that has impacted people and industries worldwide, including the business community and employees. To help you navigate the search for information related to human resources and employee questions, P&N’s HR Consulting team has compiled the following links to several key resources.
The Department of Labor (DOL) has begun issuing guidance related to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act going into effect April 1, 2020.
Each covered employer must post a notice of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requirements in a conspicuous place on its premises. An employer may satisfy this requirement by emailing or direct-mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website.
Countless employers are seeking information to provide to employees regarding FFCRA. The DOL has issued fact sheets for both employees and employers to assist with common questions.
Additionally, the Wage and Hour Division of DOL has provided information on common issues employers and employees are facing as they respond to COVID-19, and the corresponding 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 the new paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave requirements under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
As we navigate this unprecedented situation, please reach out to P&N if you need help with DOL guidance or new information related to the FFCRA and CARES Act. Our consulting team can provide experienced insight into best practices and recommendations for your organization’s unique situation.
