Because the Department of Labor published final regulations in February clarifying changes to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), all covered employers are required to display the new poster beginning on March 8, 2013. The poster summarizes the revisions of the federal FMLA and tells employees how to file a complaint. The poster must be displayed at all locations, even if there are no FMLA eligible employees, meaning, fewer than 50 employees within a 75 mile radius of the worksite.

The regulations require the use of updated forms, which should be used immediately and which expire on February 28, 2015.
