The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently published two updated workplace posters: Federal Minimum Wage poster, and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) poster. (Note: Federal, state or local governments are exempt from the EPPA so no poster is required for these employers)
The posters have been visually redesigned and includes a QR Code, which when scanned takes the user to the DOL’s Wage & Hour Division pages for “Wages and the Fair Labor Standards Act” and the EPPA.
The updated posters are dated 07/16 and went in effect on August 1, 2016. This means that employers must have these posters up now!
- Print out the new poster in color (note: it requires letter size paper) and place over the existing federal minimum wage and EPPA posters in the workplace.
- Update the electronic copies of the posters on your intranet site for employees (if applicable).
- Update the electronic copies of the EPPA poster on your on-line application site. Remember, the EPPA poster must be visible to your applicants (29 C.F.R. 801.6)
