DOL Issues Model Poster All Businesses Covered by New Federal Leave Laws Must Post

March 26, 2020 Employment law

The new federal paid leave laws enacted in response to the COVID-19 outbreak — the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act (summaries here) — go into effect on April 1, 2020. By that date, covered employers (most private employers with less than 500 employees) must post notice of employee rights under these new laws in a conspicuous place. The Department of Labor has issued a sample poster that employers can use for this purpose, located here.
