IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE FFCRA

This applies to any employer that has less than 500 total employees.  If you have 500 or more total employees, then please ignore the attached Notice and continue to the Schulte & Company homepage.  

The attached poster is a required Notice to employees pursuant to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).  The Notice must be put in a conspicuous place on your premises. You can satisfy this requirement by emailing or direct mailing this notice to employees, or posting this notice on an employee information internal or external website.  Here are some Q&As provided by the U.S. Department of Labor:

If my state provides greater protections than the FFCRA, do I still have to post this notice?

Yes, all covered employers must post this notice regardless of whether their state requires greater protections. The employer must comply with both federal and state law. 

Our employees must report to our main office headquarters each morning and then go off to work at our different worksite locations. Do we have to post this notice at all of our different worksite locations?

The notice needs to be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees can see it. If they are able to see it at the main office, it is not necessary to display the notice at your different worksite locations. 

I am running out of wall space. Can I put the required notices in a binder that I put on the wall?

No, you cannot put federal notices in a binder. Generally, employers must display federal notices in a conspicuous place where they are easily visible to all employees—the intended audience. 

We have break rooms on each floor in our building. Do I have to post notices in each break room on each floor or can I just post them in the lunchroom?

If all of your employees regularly visit the lunchroom, then you can post all required notices there. If not, then you can post the notices in the break rooms on each floor or in another location where they can easily be seen by employees on each floor. 

Our company has many buildings. Our employees report directly to the building where they work, and there is no requirement that they first report to our main office or headquarters prior to commencing work. Do I have to post this notice in each of our buildings?

Yes. Where an employer has employees reporting directly to work in several different buildings, the employer must post all required federal notices in each building, even if the buildings are located in the same general vicinity (e.g., in an industrial park or on a campus). 

Do I have to post this notice in other languages that my employees speak? Where can I get the notice in other languages?

You are not required to post this notice in multiple languages, but the Department of Labor is working to translate it into other languages. 

Do I have to share this notice with recently laid-off individuals?

No, the FFCRA requirements explained on this notice apply only to current employees.

All payrolls must be in house 2-3 days prior to payroll date to avoid late fees and provide ample processing time for the banking systems.** Please note In November you should start getting your Unemployment Contribution rates for 2020, We can’t change the rate without that form*****
