On Tuesday March 24th, 2020, The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division announced its first round of published information for employees and employers to know how to use the protection and relief offer.
According to The U.S. Department of Labor, protections and relief benefits are offered by the Families First Corornavirus Response Act and will be effective on April 1, 2020.
FFCR is aimed to help the U.S. take on COVID-19 by supplying funds to all American businesses with fewer than 500 employees in order to provide employees with paid leave. The legislation makes it possible for workers to avoid choosing between their paychecks or taking care of themselves to fight the virus.
