Covid-19 Paid Leave Program Update

22 May 2020

Are your employees covered under Title I of the FMLA? In light of the pandemic, Title I was amended under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) effective April 1st. Now, covered employers must post and distribute to remote employees the poster released by the DOL. The poster provides employees covered under FMLA Title I notification of their right with regard to expanded paid leave for a specific reason related to COVID-19. The provisions will apply from April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. More information can be found on the poster itself or the DOL’s website.
