On 3/24/20, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) provided a first round of published guidance for compliance with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). At this time, HRinDemand will not be providing written policies. We will be monitoring the guidance closely and will be posed to provide those policies to you after the next round of guidance this week. I can’t stress enough the importance of being thorough in preparing these policies to ensure we are taking the correct approach. We will provide policies that are customized to your business, upon your request, that will be ready to implement by April 1, 2020. Contact HRinDemand if you would like to order customized policies for your business.

“Providing information to the American workforce is a top priority for the Wage and Hour Division,” said Administrator Cheryl Stanton. “With so many workers and so many employers struggling to find their way in these trying conditions, providing guidance on a rolling basis will allow workers and businesses to prepare for the law to go into effect on April 1, 2020. We remain committed, and are working around the clock to provide the information and tools for employees and employers alike.”
