U.S. Department of Labor Revises Two Required Posters

New regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor require employers (public and private) to post a revised Federal Minimum Wage poster and a revised Federal Employee Polygraph Act poster effective August 1, 2016.

The Federal Minimum Wage Poster now includes a section describing the rights of nursing mothers under the Fair Labor Standards Act. It also discusses independent contractor misclassification and the differences between employees and independent contractors. The new poster’s QR code, when scanned with a smart phone, takes visitors to the DOL’s compliance page.  The poster can be found in 10 different languages on the DOL’s website.

The revised Employee Polygraph Protection Act poster makes no substantive changes other than the removal of a reference to penalties for violation. Like the Minimum Wage poster, the EPPA poster includes a QR code directing visitors to the agency’s web page on the EPPA. The EPPA poster is available in English or Spanish.

The DOL also recently released an updated Family Medical Leave Act poster. The DOL has not announced when the revised FMLA notice must be posted, and the February 2013 version remains sufficient to fulfill the posting requirement.

California has its own comprehensive posting requirements for all workplaces. If you have not recently reviewed your postings, the new school year is a good time to ensure all posters are up to date.  For assistance or questions regarding required postings, please contact one of the authors or one of the attorneys in our Education Law Group.
