The U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Wage and Hour Division earlier this week published additional employer guidance regarding compliance with the FLSA during the COVID-19 pandemic ("Guidance"). The Guidance is a helpful aide in understanding general wage and hour principles during the crisis. With more restrictions and fewer dollars, employers are left wondering how to handle their most valuable resource – their human capital. New guidance from the U.S. Department of Labor clarifies compensation requirements for employees affected by coronavirus-related business closures. The new guideline includes:
Reimbursements For Costs Associated With Telework.
Maintaining the Exempt Status of Salaried Employees During the Pandemic.
Encourage Telework In A Non-Discriminatory Fashion.
Employer Liability For Unsafe Conditions In An Employee's Home.
Exceptions To The Continuous Workday Rule And Recordkeeping Obligations
The Guidance Does Not Address The Compensability Of Temperature Checks.
