The United States Department of Labor recently issued new workplace posters for employers. As of August 1, 2016, covered employers must update their Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) minimum wage poster and Federal Employee Polygraph Protection Act (“EPPA”) poster. As with most employment posters, employers must post a copy of each updated poster in a conspicuous place within the workplace. Employers should also remove previous versions of these posters and replace them with the newer versions. Copies of the updated FLSA and EPPA poster, as well as other DOL required posters, are available on the DOL’s website.
The DOL poster updates should remind employers to verify that they are posting all mandated federal, state, and local workplace posters.
