FMLA poster updated: The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has released a newly-updated Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster, which is available here. Per the applicable FMLA regulations, “covered employers” must post and keep posted on their premises, in conspicuous locations where employees are employed and where it can be readily seen by employees and applicants for employment, a notice of explaining FMLA’s provisions and the procedures for filing a complaint for FMLA violations with the DOL. Employers are covered by the FMLA if they employ 50 or more employees for each working day during each of 20 or more calendar workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year. Covered employers must post this notice, even if none of their employees are eligible for FMLA leave. The DOL’s FMLA poster is designed to fulfill such posting requirements. Fortunately for employers, the DOL notes on its website, www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/posters/fmla, that the prior April 2016 and February 2013 versions of the FMLA poster still fulfill posting requirements, meaning employers are not required to immediately replace the posters that may be captured in a combination posting. However, as a best practice, employers should consider posting the April 2023 poster as soon as practicable. For ASE members, you can obtain new posters with a 15% discount.

FLSA poster updated for Pump Act changes: The required FLSA poster has been updated to include Pump At Work information for employee awareness. When the Affordable Care Act first mandated pumping breaks, they were limited to workers entitled to the FLSA’s overtime protections — “nonexempt” workers who often are paid on an hourly basis. The PUMP Act expanded those rights to exempt employees, who are not entitled to minimum wage and overtime protections and are often paid on a salary basis.
