Important Compliance Alert:

Mandatory Federal Posting Changes are Now in Effect!

The Department of Labor has issued two new mandatory postings. 

The Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) – new postings includes added policies about mandatory breaks for nursing mothers and correctly classifying independent contractors, among other updates.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) – includes revised information pertaining to penalties and fines for not posting.  The Secretary of Labor may assess civil penalties against violators. 

These changes were effective August 1, 2016.  All U.S. employers must update federal postings to remain in compliance. 


What are the risks of labor law posting noncompliance?

Failure to comply with labor law posting requirements could lead to citations and fines during a government inspection or audit. These fines have increased dramatically!  Fines have more than doubled and potential fines are up to over $30,000.  The EPPA posting fine alone is $19,787.
