Revised Federal Minimum Wage and Employee Polygraph Posters Must Be Posted as of August 1, 2016

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has recently updated its Fair Labor Standards Act and Employee Polygraph Protection Act posters. The new versions are now available for download and must be posted as of August 1, 2016.

Federal Laws
The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards. Covered nonexempt workers are entitled to at least the federal minimum wage, and overtime pay at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek.

Note: Employers may also have certain obligations under state and/or local laws, including minimum wage and overtime pay requirements. When both the FLSA and a state law apply, the employee is entitled to the most favorable provisions of each law.

The federal Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) prohibits most private employers from using lie detector tests, either for pre-employment screening or during the course of employment. Employers generally may not require or request any employee or job applicant to take a lie detector test, or discharge, discipline, or discriminate against an employee or job applicant for refusing to take a test.

Revised Posters
Every employer of employees subject to the FLSA’s minimum wage provisions must post (and keep posted) a notice explaining the law in a conspicuous place in all of their establishments so as to permit employees to readily read it.

Additionally, every employer subject to the EPPA must post (and keep posted) on its premises a notice explaining the law in a prominent and conspicuous place in every establishment of the employer where it can readily be observed by employees and applicants for employment.

As of August 1, 2016, employers must post these revised posters.

"We have had an overwhelmingly positive experience in our relationship with Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Payroll Service. We have found them to be attentive to details, responsive to all requests and extremely pleasant to deal with. Our company has utilized PFCU Payroll Service since 2010 and have been extremely happy since Day One. They are prompt, reliable and very accommodating to our needs."

What others say about us...

"We had a situation last year where we forgot to pay a key employee his bonus. Simplifi Payroll and HR went out of their way to make sure the employee got his money less than a few hours later. You just can't get that kind of dedication anywhere else. They made me a customer for life that day."
