Attention—The DOL Has Made its FMLA Poster More “Reader Friendly”!

Generally, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides eligible employees of covered employers with up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons, with continuation of group health insurance coverage for an employee under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. The law also provides certain family military leave entitlements. Employers generally are required to preserve the jobs of employees on FMLA leave and to restore those employees to their positions upon expiration of the FMLA leave.

Have you updated your FLSA and EPPA posters?

Regular readers may have noticed that this blog took a bit of a hiatus over the summer while the authors spent some time away from work, and then working to catch up from the time away. Now that summer is winding down, the kids are heading back to school and life is starting to return to a more normal routine, it’s time to catch up on some wage and hour developments over the last month or so.

Time To Update Your Workplace Posters

Employers returning from their summer vacations might have a rude awakening when they realize that new workplace posters are now required as of August 1, 2016. While you and your workers might have been busy hitting the beach or your favorite vacation spot, the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) was busy updating two mandatory posters and announcing that the revised versions need to be posted at once.

Have You Checked Your Posting Reqirements Lately?

With all the hubbub about the NLRB's poster requirement, now is a great time for employers to make sure they are aware of all the other posting requirements.

Hold onto that "Employee Rights Notice" - the NLRB has postponed the posting deadline.

On August 25, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) announced its final rule related to the Notification of Employee Rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Under the rule, private-sector employers whose workplaces fall under NLRA jurisdiction will be required to post a notice of employee rights under that Act. The final rule requires employers to post and maintain the NLRB notice in conspicuous places, and to take “reasonable steps” to ensure that the notices are not altered, defaced, or covered by any other material, or otherwise rendered unreadable.

On September 14, 2011, the National Labor Relations Board made the newly-required poster describing employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act available for free download.
