The Department of Labor published the required poster for employers under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The DOL’s poster has since been revised, clarifying that an employee can take “up to 12 weeks of paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave paid at 2/3 for qualifying reason #5… for up to $200 daily and $12,000 total.” In addition, the DOL issued FAQs concerning the poster.

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act will begin to apply to leaves on Apr. 1, 2020. There is likely more to come, as regulations are still expected and Congress continues to debate whether other changes will be forthcoming.
