The U.S. Department of Labor released a revised FMLA poster summarizing the major provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act (the “Act”). All “covered employers” are required to display a poster summarizing the Act and informing employees how to file a complaint. The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can readily see it. The February 2013 version of the FMLA poster – which many employers already have posted – can remain in place to fulfill the posting requirement. Conversely, if a covered employer would prefer to update its posting, the new poster can be accessed at https://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/posters/fmlaen.pdf.
If you are uncertain as to whether you are a “covered employer” under the Act, please contact any one of the attorneys within Mirick O’Connell’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Group.
