Regular readers may have noticed that this blog took a bit of a hiatus over the summer while the authors spent some time away from work, and then working to catch up from the time away. Now that summer is winding down, the kids are heading back to school and life is starting to return to a more normal routine, it’s time to catch up on some wage and hour developments over the last month or so.
One of those developments is the release of a new FLSA minimum wage poster by the U.S. Department of Labor. The poster can be downloaded in .pdf format from the DOL website. Print copies will, according to the DOL, “be available for order soon.”
The DOL has also issued an updated poster under the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA), also available for download from the DOL website in .pdf form.
If you haven’t done so already, you should immediately print or obtain a copy of the new posters and post them in a “conspicuous place” in your establishment so that employees can readily read them.
