DOL Releases Field Assistance Bulletin 2020-1 & FFCRA Posters for Employers

March 25, 2020

The DOL Wage and Hour Division has updated their COVID-19 webpage to include Field Assistance Bulletin 2020-1, “Temporary Non-Enforcement Period Applicable to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA),” states that the DOL will not bring enforcement actions against any public or private employer for violations of the leave requirements in the FFCRA for a 30-day period ending on April 17, 2020, provided that the employer has made reasonable, good faith efforts to comply with the Act.

Separately, the Wage and Hour Division have released the posters that employers are required to display outlining the rights of federal employees and non-federal employees under the FFCRA. The Wage and Hour Division has also made available a FAQ addressing issues related to the posters (e.g., where the posters must be displayed, etc.)
