DOL Announces Temporary Non-Enforcement of Paid Leave Mandates

DOL has published a Field Assistance Bulletin announcing that it will not bring enforcement actions against employers who are attempting, in good faith, to comply with the new coronavirus-related leave mandates passed by Congress. According to the bulletin, DOL will not begin enforcement until April 18, 2020.

Employers are reminded that the leave provisions are not exclusively enforced by DOL as the leave provisions provide a private right of action.
