Our customers are always calling or emailing us because they are bombarded with solicitations for labor law posters. Some get the one in the mail that talks about fines, see here others get emails that look like this, copied directly from the email:
“The DOL has just made updates to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), also known as the Minimum Wage notice, and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA).
By law, employers are required to post these new versions.
The changes made to the mandatory posters that you should be aware of are:
- Removed fine amounts that became outdated when increased fines and civil penalties went into effect
- The revised FLSA aka Minimum Wage poster has added information about independent contractors and nursing mothers
- The FLSA poster now prominently displays the posting requirement. The phrase “The law requires employers to display this poster where employees can readily see it” has been moved to the top of the poster. Guarantee that you are compliant by law by displaying both revised posters along with their state required notices, many of which have recently been updated for 2017. Get both your federal and state labor law posters here”
This is a solicitation, when the person clicks on the links, it takes you to a website to order new posters.
The interesting thing about this email that’s going around is that its from July 2017, and the changes they are talking about took place in Aug 2016!!! They are about a year too late.
Our customers know when they buy from us, they are notified of any changes immediately upon their release, not a year later.
