Without restating all requirements of FFCRA, discussed here and here, we at KRCL’s Employment Law Practice Group wanted to provide you immediately with the wording proposed by the U.S. Department of Labor for employee notice (the DOL manages these issues for the federal government).  The model below was issued by the DOL on March 25, 2020.
