2017 Labor Law Updates 

Stay Labor Law Compliant (It's the Law)

In 2017, there have been approximately 22 minimum wage poster updates. Trends from this year, combined with the information our research experts have gathered for 2018, have led us to expect more than 50 changes in labor laws across the country in 2018. Are you prepared for these changes? No one wants to find out the hard way that their posters are no longer in compliance. Where labor laws are concerned, taking risks is not worth the consequences.

Labor laws are in a constant state of change. There is always something new employers need to know to stay compliant with state, federal, and local labor laws. If you are out of touch regarding unemployment insurance, equal employment opportunity, the Polygraph Protection Act, workers’ compensation, or other laws, understanding the posting requirements will help you stay in compliance.

All labor law posters are subject to change. However, minimum wage posters tend to change most frequently. Our research team has provided the state and federal labor law poster changes that have occurred or will occur in 2017:
