Congress Requires New COVID-19 Employment Poster

Congress and the President recently enacted and signed into law the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, giving paid leave to employees of small businesses dealing with coronavirus-related issues.

As part of that Act, employers must now also post a flier at their businesses that describes these new protections. Like other employment posters, this one must be placed in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted. We have included a copy of the new poster here for your convenience. Additionally, if your employees are working remotely, we suggest that you send them a copy of the notice.

As our recent newsletters have described, there are many new laws and regulations related to COVID-19 that are affecting small-to-mid-sized businesses. Contact us today to discuss what other obligations you may have regarding your employees as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
