BREAKING NEWS: DOL Updates FFCRA Guidance

Hey Compliance Warriors!

Today, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) announced additional guidance to provide information to workers and employers about how the requirements and protections of the Fair Labor Standards Act (), the Family and Medical Leave Act (), and the Families First Response Act () impact the workplace as America continues to reopen. The new guidance provides plain-language questions and answers addressing critical issues under all three laws. Read on…

This guidance published today adds to a growing list of compliance assistance materials published by WHD, including a Fact Sheet for Employees, a Fact Sheet for Employers, and a Questions and Answers resource about paid sick and expanded family and medical leave under the FFCRA. Available guidance also includes two posters, one for federal workers and one for all other employees, that fulfill notice requirements for employers obligated to inform employees about their rights under the FFCRA. The guidance also includes Questions and Answers about posting requirements and simple Quick Benefits Tips to determine how much paid leave workers may take under the FFCRA.

WHD provides additional information on common issues employers and employees face when responding to and its effects on wages and hours worked under the Fair Labor Standards Act and job-protected leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act at https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic
