From the Kentucky Chamber
As a result of recent legislation in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19), there’s been a mandatory labor law notice released – Families First Coronavirus Response Act Notice. This notice must be displayed in the workplace and emailed to those working from home by April 1.

The Department of Labor has released a helpful FAQ that answers such questions as:
- Where do I post this notice? Since most of my workforce is teleworking, where do I electronically “post” this notice?
- Do I have to post this notice in other languages that my employees speak? Where can I get the notice in other languages?
- Do I have to share this notice with recently laid-off individuals?
- Do I have to share this notice with new job applicants?
- Do I have to give notice of the FFCRA requirements to new hires?
- If my state provides greater protections than the FFCRA, do I still have to post this notice?
- I am a small business owner. Do I have to post this notice?
- How do I know if I have the most up-to-date notice? Will there be updates to this notice in the future?
- 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?
- I am running out of wall space. Can I put the required notices in a binder that I put on the wall?
- 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?
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?
