Kentucky Update October 2021

The Kentucky OSHA law reporting procedure has been updated. Previously, the February 2020 version stated as such:

Employers must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance any incident that results in a fatality or the hospitalization of 3 or more employees within 8 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee. Incidents resulting in the loss of an eye, an amputation, or the in-patient hospitalization of 1 or 2 employees must be reported to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance within 72 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee.

Currently, the most recent update as of September 2021 now states:

Employers must report to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance the work-related death of an employee, including death resulting from a heart attack, within 8 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee. Work-related incidents resulting in the loss of an eye, an amputation, or the in-patient hospitalization of an employee, including hospitalization resulting from a heart attack, must be reported to the Division of Occupational Safety and Health Compliance within 72 hours from when the incident is reported to the employer, the employer’s agent, or another employee.

This is a mandatory update to the Kentucky labor laws and employers must have up-to-date postings to stay in compliance or else risk getting fined during audits. Moving forward, all our Kentucky posters will be printed with this update.

Compliance Mailer Scam Awareness

Be aware of scam mailers disguised as “compliance notices” sent out to businesses to solicit sales. As a small business, we receive mailers about compliance documents, even though we are the ones who sell labor law posters here at All In One Poster Company. Recently we received a notice that looks like this:

This letter is sent by a company called Corporate Compliance Center that is NOT endorsed by the government.

It is easy to mistake these notices as official letters. Read letters like these very closely. The letters say things like “Return by (date) to allow adequate processing time for your documents.” and “California Law Annual Minutes Requirements… you will receive your certificate of minutes within 3 weeks of sending your form.”

Letters like these try to invoke legal business code as a scare tactic.

With access to the internet, it is easy to look up what that California Code is supposed to be. It really has nothing to do with compliance, and is simply about a written record of a meeting internally within the company. If you’ll notice, at the very bottom it even states a disclaimer that they are not approved or endorsed by any governmental agency. Read the disclaimers in the letter very carefully. “This product or service has not been approved or endorsed by any governmental agency” is highlighted in yellow.

What should I do with these letters or mailers?

Feel free to recycle or shred these, since these mailers are not government official letters, and the company is not government-affiliated.

Know that All In One Poster Company does NOT send out mailers like these.

Our sales are done via website, phone, or e-mail. We do not cold-call or solicit sales from customers or potential clients.

I’m a new business or I don’t have any employees; do I still need to get these labor law posters?

If you do not have any employees, you do not need to post these. If you have at least 1 employee, you need to post these. You may also need to get Spanish posters if you have employees that only understand Spanish and cannot read English.

Kansas Update August 2021

The Kansas labor law postings for anti-discrimination have been updated, effective July 2021.

This is a MANDATORY update and all employers should make sure their posters are in compliance since the legal, statutory text has been revised. The exact change is on the Anti-discrimination poster for the state of Kansas. It states: “Kansas law provides equal opportunity in employment without regard to race, religious, color, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, or age. Genetic testing and screening is also prohibited.”

The new addendum adds: “Sex includes LGBTQ+, all derivatives of sex, and pregnancy. Age is 40 or more years.”

In addition, the Dodge City Office contact information for the phone number and fax have been updated, and the Topeka main office added an email (khrc@ks.gov).
