U.S. Dept. of Labor releases Coronavirus-related info for businesses, workers

 
Series: Coronavirus | Story 12

March 19, 2020



On March 25, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) published its first round of implementation guidance pursuant to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The guidance addresses critical questions such as:

• How does an employer count its number of employees to determine coverage?

• How can small businesses obtain an exemption?

• How does an employer count hours for part-time employees?

• How does an employer calculate wages employees are entitled to under the FFCRA?

The initial WHD guidance is available in three parts:

1. Fact Sheet for Employees

2. Fact Sheet for Employers

3. Questions and Answers

The Department of Labor encourages you to forward this information to your workers. A workplace poster model for covered employers will be published later this week, along with additional fact sheets and FAQs.

If you have further questions, please call (202) 693-4600 or email the Department at [email protected]

Also, the Small Business Administration has announced several webinars to provide information to businesses regarding the SBA Disaster Loans and PA Financing Programs.
