Are All Your Notices And Posters Up To Date?

by Robert L. Rediger, Esq.

All employers in California are required to post numerous notices in areas frequented by their employees. The notices are intended to inform employees of their rights under various federal and state employment-related laws. Often a federal or state agency, however, will issue an updated poster with little fanfare or notice to the public.

In July 2016, the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor updated its “Employee Rights Under The Fair Labor Standards Act” and the “Polygraph Protection Act” posters, both of which must be displayed, along with other notices, where employees are able to view such easily, such as in an employee break room or near a time clock.
