When was the last time you did an internal audit of (or even thought about) the labor-law posters in your workplace? If the answer isn’t six months or sooner, this webinar is a must for you. Posting requirements are constantly changing, with over 100 changes in the past year. And because of the pandemic and a spike in new state and local employment laws, employers are being forced to juggle more poster updates than ever.
It’s not just FMLA and minimum wage. A half-dozen federal posters … up to 15 state-specific postings … up to 10 additional local postings … industry-specific postings. Your posting obligations are anything but basic, and no two states have the same requirements. And new U.S. Department of Labor rules explain when you must send these notices to your remote employees.
Poster violations won’t just earn you a slap on the wrist. They can result in huge per-day fines and increased penalties for “willful” violations. For example, an OSHA poster violation can trigger fines up to $13,653 per violation. And fines have doubled in recent years.
Most companies think they’re in compliance but they’re actually not, studies show. Don’t risk it. HR needs to carefully review their posting status now to ensure it’s up-to-date. Spend an hour on July 28 to comply with confidence and avoid huge fines down the road.
