Q&A: IL & WA Labor Law Posters

Q:   By any chance, do you happen to know if Illinois and Washington will have new state posters:  Illinois (social media password and  gender identity law), and Washington (leave time off)?

A: None of these laws require new state posters.

Illinois –

  • HB3782 governing social media use in the workplace was signed into law 8/1/12 and goes into effect 1/1/13.   This law does not require a poster.
  • Civil Rights Act:   Illinois does not require a discrimination poster. The state Civil Rights Act was amended as of 1/1/12 making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of gender identity.

Washington  – Implementation of a new state paid family leave program has been delayed from 2012 to 2015.
