There is nothing like the federal government’s “advanced notice” regarding their newly revised posters and their effective dates. The United States Department of Labor (USDOL) with “little fanfare” recently announced that the Federal Minimum Wage and the Polygraph Protection Act posters have been revised and should be posted by employers effective August 1st, 2016. Yes you read right, 8/1/16.
In comparing the old with the new, there isn’t much change. The Minimum Wage poster did add language regarding the “Nursing Mother’s Amendment” to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) but removed the amount of penalties for FLSA violations. The only difference I could determine for the change in the Polygraph Protection Act poster is that the amount of penalties were removed from the poster as with the Minimum Wage poster—so much for the “Paperwork Reduction Act.”
CAI will not be revising our Combined Employment Poster at this time due to anticipation of other required posters being revised in the fall. CAI will keep you abreast of other Federal and or State poster revisions.
