On December 18, 2008, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued a new Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster based on revisions published in November 2008. Employers with 50 or more employees, and all public sector employers, are required to update their mandatory employee and applicant labor law postings with the new FMLA poster.
The new FMLA poster outlines how the expanded FMLA provides job-protected leave for the spouses, children or parents of members of the armed forces called to active duty in the U.S. military. Additional FMLA rights for employers and workers are clarified on the new poster, too.
Along with the FMLA poster, employers must post all other mandatory federal and state labor law posters, a burden that entails monitoring up to 20 different posters from as many as seven different agencies. And with the incoming Democratic administration expected to serve a more regulatory function with labor issues and workers’ rights, the level of labor law posting enforcement is expected to increase.
That’s why many employers are turning to third-party poster providers to maintain their posting compliance.
