Q:  Is there a new poster for the Hawaii Family and Medical Leave Act which went into effect May 2009 that must be posted in addition to the federal FMLA poster?

A:  The Hawaii Family Leave Law was amended by Act 48, effective May 6, 2009, to require employers to post a Family Leave Law poster. However, the Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations has announced that their current state labor law poster already meets this requirement and this is included on the Poster Compliance Center all-in-one Hawaii labor law poster.
