Employers are required to post notice of H.R. 6201 provisions for all employees
H.R. 6201, or the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, was signed by the president on March 18, 2020 — the bill provides paid sick leave and free COVID-19 testing, expands food assistance and unemployment benefits, and requires employers to provide additional protections for health care workers.
Employers will be required to post a notice of the new provisions provided by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act prominently for employees by Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
Here’s the Department of Labor-required poster to post in your office.
This notice must be posted openly in a high-traffic area or gathering space in your office. If your workforce has transitioned to working remotely, the posting requirement can also be met by emailing or directly mailing the notice to employees. Posting the notice to an internal or external employee information website will also satisfy the posting requirements.
While employers are not required to post this notice in multiple languages, the DOL is working on translating this notice into other languages that will be made available on the DOL’s Workplace Posters page.
