On March 24, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued guidance on the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Importantly, the DOL stated the effective date of FFCRA is April 1, 2020. Note: This is different than the April 2, 2020 effective date previously mentioned.
As a reminder, Cascade has developed a COVID-19 Resource Center just for employers, which goes into detail regarding the FFCRA. Moreover, this dedicated site is full of FAQs, resources, webinars, surveys, sample policies, factsheets and guides, alerts and explanations pertaining to COVID-19 and employers.
Cascade is actively monitoring this situation, and will continue to provide additional guidance as the DOL issues more clarifications. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Our team is prepared to answer your questions.
