Department of Labor Insights On FFCRA from Bruce Henderson

    March 25, 2020

    The DOL issued late yesterday some helpful answers to questions about application of the FFCRA.  

    Several surprises, such as:  https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic/ffcra-questions

    1. Effective date of Act is now April 1
    2. Looks like even your leased employees count toward the 500 employees,
    3. Under 50 and you still will have to apply for exemption under soon to be issued guidelines, and
    4. The act is not retroactive (i.e., for the employers who are providing that benefit now).
