Employers Should Prepare to Answer FFCRA Questions

The Department of Labor's new media campaign surrounding the COVID-19 sick and family leave under the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) may attract the attention of some of your employees, and as a result, business owners and employers should prepare to answer FFCRA questions.

Questions may include topics such as telework, paid sick leave, required documentation, FMLA, and much more.

The media blitz includes television, radio, and social media public service announcements aimed at educating millions of workers and employers about their rights under the FFCRA.

While all employers have been required to post notices informing employees of their rights under the law since April, those notices are the basic starting point. Nevertheless, employers must still be prepared to answer and address additional questions and concerns with their employees.
