New labor posters need to be posted on August 1, 2016
Because of recent changes in federal employment regulations, new labor posters must be posted by today, August 1, 2016:
Fortunately, getting a copy of these posters is quick, easy, and inexpensive. Just visit the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) to download copies. Because not all employers are required to post all posters, the DOL has a poster advisor that will assist employers with the process of choosing which posters are required (usually depending on the size of the workforce).
Keep in mind that recent changes in regulations have increased the civil penalties for failing to display required posters. For example, the old penalty for failing to post a required notice about the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was $110; the new penalty under FMLA is $163. This penalty applies to each offense. To avoid incurring any unnecessary penalties, employers must ensure they comply with posting requirements—and the easiest way to do that is to use the tools provided by the DOL.
