Earlier this week, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that it would be posting an informational webinar regarding compliance issues with the recently-enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (“FFCRA”). That webinar, which provides information regarding the FFCRA for both employers and employees went live today and can be accessed at: https://dolwhd.cosocloud.com/pawkgwfawza0/?proto=true. The DOL’s Wage & Hour Division also distributed Power Point slides to accompany the webinar, which can be accessed here.
California employers should continue to monitor our blog for future updates concerning the FFCRA and other employment developments as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We also remind employers that they should seek legal advice to determine whether the FFCRA applies to their business, and if so, what steps to take to ensure compliance.
