FEDERAL LABOR LAW POSTING UPDATE – EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1ST

llposter

Effective August 1, 2016, employers must post new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) postings. Penalty amounts listed on previous versions of posters are incorrect as of that date.

The Department of Labor has removed penalty amounts from the posters and has added a section about the rights of nursing mothers to the FLSA poster. Employers are required to post the revised versions of these federal posters.

Reminder:  If your company operates in multiple states, you must have a poster for the applicable state in each appropriate state location.  Ex:  SC must have a SC poster, NY must have a NY poster, etc.  Also, the postings must be posted in a conspicuous location – such as a breakroom or by the timeclock – where all employees have routine access.  If your company has multiple locations, you must have a compliant labor law poster in each location.
