Revised posters required by Labor Dept. as of August 1
Effective August 1, all dealers and other employers must use newly revised posters mandated by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA).
The posters refer to revisions made by the U.S. Department of Labor on July 26 that fulfill a requirement imposed by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (sic). The requirement states that DOL (and many other federal agencies) adjust civil penalties periodically to reflect inflation. The revised posters contain only a general statement that civil monetary penalties may be assessed for certain violations, eliminating the need to reprint them each time penalty adjustments are made.
Note: The updated FLSA Minimum Wage poster includes a new worker classification statement and new language on the rights of nursing mothers in the workplace.
Questions about the new posters or civil penalties can be directed to NADA Regulatory Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org. The revised posters are available here:
