Employment Law Report
Are Your FLSA and EPPA Posters Up to Date?
By Courtney Ross Samford
The Department of Labor recently announced revisions to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) posters that must be posted in workplaces across the country. The updated posters, which are available for download on the DOL’s website, must be posted by August 1, 2016.
All private, federal, state and local government employers employing at least one employee are subject to the requirements of the FLSA. The EPPA applies to any employer engaged in or affecting commerce or in the production of goods for commerce, but excludes federal, state and local governments, and circumstances covered by the national defense and security exemption.
