Attention, All Employers: Two mandatory DOL Posting Changes Require Immediate Action

On July 27, 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) issued regulations that require all U.S. employers to update their employee postings. Businesses must replace the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) postings immediately to meet the August 2016 compliance date.

Here are more details on the posting changes:

FLSA poster – Added policies about mandatory breaks for nursing mothers and correctly classifying independent contractors, among other updates
EPPA poster – Revised information related to penalties and fines for not posting

What does this mean for your business?

All businesses with at least one employee must update both postings to stay compliant, or face potential fines. And it’s important to act now to meet the August 2016 effective date.

Federal deregulation efforts continue under the new administration. But history shows that when federal regulation slows, state and local regulatory activity increases. Nowhere is this more evident than in the area of employment law. Over the last year, many states and cities have stepped up their own legislative activity by passing a record number of new employment laws. And with each new law there is a potential poster update or new poster being issued. Depending on your state, you may now be required to post up to 21 labor law notices. And that doesn’t include local postings: more cities and counties are issuing mandatory posters than ever before.
