With all the press surrounding the U.S. Department of Labor’s proposed changes to regulations regarding exemptions under the Fair Labor Standards Act employers may have missed the fact that a new Fair Labor Standards Act Minimum Wage Poster was released. The new poster replaces the old one as of August 1, 2016.
The new poster adds information on nursing mothers and a bullet point in the “Additional Information” section on misclassification of workers as independent contractors. It also has a QR code in the corner which, when scanned, takes you to the DOL website.
The FLSA poster, which is published in several languages, and numerous other posters for small businesses and other employers, may be accessed at: https://www.dol.gov/oasam/boc/osdbu/sbrefa/poster/matrix.htm.
