It’s the law! As minimum wages increase and new employment laws are enacted, it is important that all companies, regardless of size, have up to date labor law posters. These posters must be posted in view of all of your employees; typically in a break room, or an entrance location – clearly in view for all to see. Employers’ failure to post this information may result in a fine of $10,000.00.
What is included in these posters? These posters list employees’ rights, including both Federal and State. Federal information includes the employee polygraph protection act, equal employment opportunity statements; information regarding the family and medical leave act, the updated federal minimum wage and USERRA (Veteran benefits). State information includes additional information regarding the extended FMLA and pregnancy disability, California’s minimum wage, statements on discrimination and harassment in the workplace, pay day notices, voting information and whistleblower protections just to name a few.
Post your Wage Order – The California Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC) regulates wages, hours of work, and working conditions according to your particular industry. The Wage Order for your industry must also be posted in view for all of your employees, regardless of your company size. If you are not sure which wage order you should post, we recommend you visiting www.hrcalifornia.com and use their “wizard” to accurately evaluate which wage order you should post.
