Compliance Alert: California Labor Law Posters Expired January 1st 2017
We are launching a Labor Law Poster Compliance Service!
California Labor Law Posters Expired January 1st, 2017. New Poster Required!
Effective January 1st, 2017, employers in California are required to display the new California Minimum Wage Notice. Employers in California must display notice of the Minimum Wage law in each workplace. This labor law posting must be displayed where all employees are likely to view it.
This new labor law posting release follows on recent mandatory updates to two Federal notices. Effective August 1, 2016, Federal updates to the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act must be posted by every business in the U.S. with at least one employee. In addition, there are 1-2 more Federal Mandatory Posting Updates anticipated in 2017.
Why do I need Labor Law posters?
Labor Law posters are required by law. All employers with at least one employee are required to post the most up-to-date State and Federal labor law postings. To minimize risk of non-compliance, businesses are responsible for monitoring the current Federal and State specific labor law changes. Some poster providers offer a monitoring service that will automatically notify you of any relevant and mandatory changes and offer the most up-to-date posting for display.
Avoiding Fines & Penalties
It is the responsibility of all employers to remain compliant with labor law postings by displaying the latest, most up-to-date notices, to prevent penalties and risks of non-compliance. Failure to post up-to-date labor law postings can result in fines up to $17,000 per customer location (29 USC Sec. 666(i) and 29 USC Sec. 2005).
