If you haven’t hung up these two revised posters yet, the time is now. They became mandatory on August 1. 

Which posters were changed?

  • The Federal Minimum Wage poster, and
  • The Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) poster.

What changed?

The look of both posters has been refreshed, and a QR code was added to both posters to direct users to the DOL’s Wage and Hour Division website.

In addition, on the Federal Minimum Wage poster, the section explaining limits on penalties for non-compliance has been removed, and information regarding employers’ obligations to nursing mothers has been added.

On the EPPA poster, the section explaining penalty limits was removed.

Are you using new FMLA poster?

These changes come on the heels of the DOL’s revisions to the General FMLA Notice poster, which were released in April.

Employers covered by the FMLA are required to hang the new poster or stick with a pre-existing poster that outlines the same info as the new poster.

Not sure what’s required of you?

Not all employers are required to use all federal posters. If you’re not sure which posting requirements your business is required to follow, the DOL has created a handy tool for you.

The DOL’s online FirstStep Poster Advisor is a free resource you can use to determine which posters you’re required to hang. You just have to answer some brief questions about your business.
