Update Applicable to:
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has released updated posters regarding the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
What are the details?
The FLSA Minimum Wage poster has been updated to reflect employers’ obligations under the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers (PUMP) Act which took effect in December 2022.
The FMLA Employee Rights poster has been redesigned and includes new language about how a “covered employer” is defined under the law, namely:
- a private employer that had at least 50 employees during at least 20 workweeks in the current or previous calendar year;
- an elementary or public or private secondary school, regardless of the number of employees; and
- a public agency, such as a local, state or federal government agency.
The DOL also notes that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is in the process of updating its “Know Your Rights” poster to address the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which takes effect on June 27, 2023 and will require covered employers (including private and public sector employers with at least 15 employees) to provide reasonable accommodations to a worker’s known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.

What do employers need to do?
The DOL advises that covered employers that purchase “all-in-one” notice posters from third party vendors may wish to defer purchasing a new vendor-created poster until after the EEOC releases its updated poster in June 2023 and, in the interim, print and post the updated version of the FLSA poster separately.
