Ohio Adds Military Family Leave Law But No New Labor Law Poster

The new Ohio Military Family Leave Act went into effect last month but at this time there is no new required labor law poster on the topic.  

The new family leave law, effective as of July 2, 2010, requires Ohio employers with 50 or more employees to provide two weeks of unpaid leave for an employee who is a spouse, parent, or a person with legal custody of a uniformed service member when the member is deployed or injured.  

Unlike federal FMLA requirements, the employer is not required to have 50 employees within 75 miles of the worksite to be covered by the new law.  

We will continue to monitor the posting requirements for Ohio in case a new state labor law poster is added in the future.  

If you need to update your Ohio labor law poster or have other federal or state labor law poster questions, go to the Poster Compliance Center Ohio labor law poster page or call 1-800-322-3636.
