In our ongoing effort to keep you up-to-date on the fast moving Federal and State guidelines, mandates and regulations as they pertain to the COVID-19 virus, please find the most recent items, as reviewed by Jane May, our primary resource at O’Halloran, Kosoff, Geitner and Cook, ICRMT Corporate Council.
Below is a link to the Department of Labor’s (DOL) required poster on Emergency Family and Medical Leave and Emergency Paid Sick Leave. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) requires employers to post this notice in the workplace. The Act states that “each employer shall post and keep posted, in conspicuous places on the premises of the employer where notices to employees are customarily posted, a notice, to be prepared or approved by the Secretary of Labor, of the requirements described in this Act.”
Additionally, The DOL has issued some guidance on the new Emergency Family and Medical Leave and Emergency Paid Sick Leave provisions in the FFCRA which states that the effective date is 4/1/20– which is a day earlier than we anticipated. You can view the guidance by clicking here. It includes Q & A along with some information for employers and employees.
Finally, Jane listened in on a Whitehouse briefing call on Wednesday, March 25 for state and local government and was made aware of a federal website dedicated to cyber and critical infrastructure security. Members may find some of the information on the site useful, including information on how to identify critical operations, infrastructure and services that must continue to operate during the pandemic. We encourage you to visit the website at, https://www.cisa.gov/coronavirus.
We hope you find this information useful. As additional information becomes available through state and federal agencies, we will review it and pass it along to ICRMT members as soon as possible.
As always, if you have questions, please contact Jane May at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
