Employee rights posters updated

August 26, 2016
Employers must use two newly revised posters mandated by the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act. The revisions made by the U.S. Department of Labor, effective Aug. 1, fulfill a requirement imposed by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 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. 
All federal and state posters that Illinois and Indiana businesses must display in common areas can be downloaded free from the CATA website. See
Questions about the new posters or civil penalties can be directed to NADA Regulatory Affairs at
