April 1, 2020 – NCHBA Update

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFRCA) becomes effective April 1, 2020 and runs through December 31, 2020.

The FFCRA requires employers with less than 500 employees to provide:

  1. up to two weeks (80 hours for full-time employees or two weeks equivalent for a part-time employee) for certain COVID-19 related absences, and
  2. up to an additional ten (10) weeks of paid Family Medical Leave Act leave to care for a child who is out of school due to COVID-19.

As a covered employer you must post a notice of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requirements in a conspicuous place on your premises like you do with your labor notices and posters. If you have employees working remotely you can satisfy the posting requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to your employees or by posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website. As of today, you are not required to post this sign in multiple languages.
