03.31.2020 UPDATE Re: FFCRA Notice Posters By: Laura D. Windsor & Sara Tandy

Our March 26, 2020 alert informed employers of the Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) issuance of two new posters notifying employees of the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which must be posted or otherwise communicated to workers by April 1, 2020.

The March 26 alert linked to a version of the non-federal employee poster that has since been updated by the DOL. The links in our original alert have also now been updated to the newest version.

The discrepancies between the earlier and later versions of the private sector poster are as follows (located in the third bullet under “PAID LEAVE ENTITLEMENTS”):

The previous version of the poster provides that generally, employers covered under the Act “must provide employees…

  • Up to 10 weeks more of paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave paid at 2/3 for qualifying reason #5 below for up to $200 daily and $12,000 total.”


The updated version provides that employers “must provide employees…

  • Up to 12 weeks of paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave paid at 2/3 for qualifying reason #5 below for up to $200 daily and $12,000 total.”
