This year has had its fill of changes, from the pandemic and its effects on how we conduct business to schools going virtual, to families staying indoors with seemingly no end. 2020 has gone by in a flash and with it, a list of labor law changes have come into effect. Be sure to take a look below and make sure your posters are still in compliance.

Three important reasons to keep your labor law posters in compliance: 

1) It’s the law. An employer who chooses not to post or update mandatory labor law notices is breaking the law. Violators can be fined for non-compliance or may even face a lawsuit brought on by a disgruntled employee.

2) It shows integrity. Your employees will see that you value them and recognize their rights in the workplace.

3) Avoid Lawsuits. By displaying these notices, employers may reduce lawsuits and minimize disputes and grievances.

If your labor law posters are not up to date visit our federal, state, and city/county pages to shop the latest mandatory labor law posters. Want to have us manage your compliance? Check out our 1-Year Compliance Plan, or our City/County 1-Year Plan to keep your business in compliance for a full 12 months.

Minimum Wage 

This year there are 23 confirmed updates to state minimum wage laws and 43 county and city minimum wage updates. Many of these new minimum wage rates are part of stepped increases over several years, a trend we expect to continue in the future.

Other Labor Law Poster Updates   

We’re always watching for the next wave of minimum wage increases, but we also monitor other potential labor law poster updates. Below are just some examples of possible changes.

  • Earned/Paid Sick Leave
  • Safety & Health (OSH)
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Unemployment Insurance
