FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (July 29, 2016)
Department of Labor Releases Two New Postings Required August 1
J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.® Update Service Helps Employers Comply
Neenah, WI — As of August 1, 2016, employers must post new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) postings.
The new postings are the result of an increase in fines under the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015.
The Department of Labor has removed penalty amounts from both the FLSA and EPPA postings. The FLSA posting also shows the minimum wage, but the revised penalties, rather than a minimum wage change, are the reason for a new poster. In addition, a new section concerning the rights of nursing mothers has been added to the FLSA poster.
“It’s critical for employers to stay on top of mandatory posting changes like these,” said Terri Dougherty, human resources expert at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “A business with outdated posters could be fined and is at greater risk of an employee lawsuit.”
To help employers stay current with labor law posting changes, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc., a leader in safety and compliance, offers its State and Federal Labor Law Poster Update Service. Subscribers to this service are sent updated posters automatically whenever there is a mandatory change.
