Eligible employers have a responsibility under the law to provide notice to their employees by June 23, 2022. Notice must be posted in a form approved by the commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry, advising all current workers who may be eligible for Frontline Worker Pay of the assistance potentially available to them and how to apply for benefits. The Department of Labor has made a standard employer notice form available online, available below.
The law also requires employers to provide the required notice “using the same means the employer uses to provide other work-related notices to employees.” Examples included are that the notice “must be at least as conspicuous as: (1) posting a copy of the notice at each work site where workers work and where the notice may be readily observed and reviewed by all workers working at the site; or (2) providing a paper or electronic copy of the notice to all workers.”
