Employment LawScene Alert:
Employers Must Update Their FLSA Posters

On August 1, 2016, the Department of Labor updated its mandatory Fair Labor Standards Act Minimum Wage poster. All employers subject to the FLSA must display this newly revised poster in prominent locations in the workplace where all employees and applicants can readily see it. The updates to the newly revised poster include information on the consequences of incorrectly classifying workers as independent contractors, information relating to the rights of nursing mothers, updated information regarding DOL enforcement, and revised information relating to tip credits.

Employers must post the new poster immediately. Although employers are only required to post the poster in English, there are also versions available in Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Thai, Hmong, Vietnamese, and Korean. The new version of the poster can be found here.
