Weekly HR News – FLSA

Employment Law Posters – NEW FLSA Poster

The Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has released a revised Fair Labors Standards Act (FLSA) poster effective July 2016.  Cities should be sure to update their current FLSA poster with the new poster immediately.  The effective date of July 2016 is noted in the lower right corner. 

In regards to all federal posters, the DOL website provides assistance for employers in deciding which federal posters are required, and provides those posters for free.  State-required posters and notices can also be printed at no cost from the following websites:   

Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) strives to notify cities of new poster requirements and changes as they occur; however, all city employers should check the above links and the federal and state Department of Labor websites frequently as the statutory laws and federal regulations can change. 

Also, it is important to note that the regulations require that any required posters be readily viewable "in conspicuous places" and "in every establishment" in which employees are employed.
