On July 24th the federal minimum wage increased for the first time in 10 years! Not only is it mandatory for employers to conspicuously display up-to-date labor law posters, it also helps protect them from disgruntled employees or frivolous employee lawsuits.

All employers with even 1 employee covered by the minimum wage provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act are now required to post the new federal minimum wage poster. It does not matter if your state has a higher minimum wage or if you pay all of your employees more than the minimum wage – you are still required to update your federal minimum wage poster.

Furthermore, if your state has had recent changes to its minimum wage notice (as many have, such as Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Vermont, etc.), you also need to post an updated state minimum wage poster.

If you have not updated yourlabor law posters yet, you can order an all-on-one federal labor law poster (and a state labor law poster if necessary) or subscribe to Poster Compliance Center’s 1-Year Compliance Protection Plan and take the worry out of staying in compliance!
