ATTENTION all Employers:
The Department of Labor recently revised the federal mandatory minimum wage and polygraph posters that employers must post in the workplace.
Although the federal minimum wage did not change, the new minimum wage poster now contains information regarding the consequences of incorrectly classifying workers as independent contractors, in addition to a new section on the rights of nursing mothers.
The new federal polygraph poster now contains updated contact information for the Department of Labor, and no longer contains a reference to the penalty amount of up to $10,000 for violation of the law.
Employers are required to post the updated posters in a conspicuous area of the workplace by no later than August 1, 2016.
