  DOL Issues Guidance for Families First Coronavirus Reponse Act  
 
Dear Business Leaders: 

I am writing to share with you an important update from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

Yesterday, DOL'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:

 A workplace poster model for covered employers will be published later this week, along with additional fact sheets and FAQs, which can be found here: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/pandemic

I hope you find this information helpful. If I can be of further assistance on this or any other matter please do not hesitate to contact my office. 


Sincerely,

James P. McGovern 
Member of Congress
