Each year, State and Federal labor law posting regulations get updated and changed. It's hard to keep track of everything that happens across the country, but we've compiled a complete list of changes (as of August 23, 2017).
While several states have also made updates to unemployment and workers compensation insurance regulations, they are not reflected in the list below; those postings must be verified and provided by your respective insurance company.
To begin, 12 states have made changes to their minimum wage documents - mostly raising the minimum wage across the country. This is the most common change to workplace compliance posters, and it's the most-searched labor law document.
The following states have updated minimum wage requirements in 2017: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Washington D.C.. In addition, Arizona has updated its "earned paid sick time"document for required posting.
The following are state-specific changes to labor law documents:
Delaware - discrimination
Idaho - discrimination
Kentucky - equal employment
Maine - child labor
Nevada - domestic violence and FMLA (family and sick leave)
Virginia - VOSH (state version of OSHA)
Vermont - FMLA (family and sick leave)
West Virginia - wage payment
