DOL Issues Round 3 of FFCRA Guidance
Posted March 27, 2020 by CUNA Advocacy

The Dept. of Labor’s (DOL) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) issued more guidance on the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The law takes effect on April 1, 2020.  

The new guidance includes questions and answers addressing issues such as what documents employees can be required to submit to their employers to use paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave; whether workers can take paid sick leave intermittently while teleworking and whether workers whose employers closed before the effective date of the FFCRA can still get paid sick leave. 

This guidance follows other compliance assistance materials published by WHD over the last few days, including a Fact Sheet for Employees, a Fact Sheet for Employers, and an earlier Questions and Answers document.
