Mandatory Employee Rights Poster

via Spruce Law

The U.S. Department of Labor released the workplace poster employers are required to distribute to employees and/or post in their workplaces under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which takes effect on April 1, 2020.


According to a FAQ published at the same time, an employer satisfies the posting requirement by emailing or direct mailing the notice to employees, or posting it on an intranet or other internal or external website accessible to employees. We realize many of our clients are working entirely remotely at this time, and we recommend those clients distribute the notice to employees via email (and, if you maintain an intranet, post it there too).


For those clients running essential businesses where employees are still reporting to a physical location, the notice should be posted alongside other required workplace posters. We recommend distributing and/or posting the notice immediately.
