Coronavirus Resources for Small Businesses
Effective April 1, 2020, small businesses are required by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) to give their employees paid leave in certain circumstances relating to the coronavirus. Employees who cannot work due to specific coronavirus-related reasons are entitled to two weeks of paid leave, with an additional 10 weeks of paid leave if they have to care for a son or daughter whose school or daycare has been closed due to the coronavirus. Click here for details on what qualifies employees for this paid leave.
The paid leave law requires all employers to provide a notice to their employees explaining the new paid time off that they may be eligible for because of the coronavirus. LSBA has mailed a copy of this poster to all members. You can print additional copies below.
As the number of COVID-19 cases rise in Louisiana, more and more cities and parishes are passing local ordinances that require masks or face coverings to be worn in public, which includes businesses.
Some of these local laws require employers to post a notice telling their employees and customers that they must wear a mask or face covering while inside the business. As a service to our members, LSBA has designed a generic mask poster for our members to use if their local area requires a mask poster.
Even if your business is not located in an area where masks are required, you may choose to require that all customers and employees wear masks, and you might want to put several of these mask posters up at your workplace as reminders.
Because hand washing is so important in preventing the spread of the coronavirus and other diseases, LSBA has free posters available for members that say “Employees Must Wash Their Hands Before Leaving.” These can be posted in restrooms or anywhere in your workplace to remind employees to wash their hands frequently.
This poster is not mandatory. But it is a good idea to remind all employees about proper hand washing to prevent illnesses.
Employers who hire minors must display a poster in a conspicuous place on the property or place of employment notifying them of the Child Labor Law.
