Revised Workplace Posters Effective August 1, 2016

Effective August 1, 2016, the United States Department of Labor (USDOL) has issued revised versions of its “Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Minimum Wage” and “Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA)” workplace posters.  Employers required to make the postings should replace the now outdated versions with these new copies immediately.  The EPPA applies to all employers.  The FLSA generally applies to an employer doing business in interstate commerce who (i) has annual gross volume of sales made or business done is at least $500,000; (ii) is engaged in the operation of a hospital, an institution primarily engaged in the care of the sick, the aged, or the mentally ill who reside on the premises; a school for mentally or physically disabled or gifted children; a preschool, an elementary or secondary school, or an institution of higher education (whether operated for profit or not for profit); or (iii) is a public agency.  The USDOL generally reads the interstate commerce requirement broadly, applying the FLSA to the very large majority of employers.  Copies of the new posters are located here (FLSA) and here (EPPA).
