2011 Federal Labor Law Poster Changes

On December 21, 2010 there were two announced changes that will possibly affect the Federal Labor Law poster. At this time both are only POSSIBLE changes. However, the possibility on both is significant.

1. The Affordable Care Act - Nursing Mothers Law will likely lead to changes in the FMLA posting. The act is already law. However, the act itself does not require a posting, but the DOL typically amends its FMLA posting to reflect changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act. Therefore, we are awaiting notification from the DOL regarding this issue. We have no anticipated date on this one, but it will be a major change IF the DOL decides to make changes.

2. The NRLB has announced a new required posting. This requirement is currently in a 60 day comment period. After the comment period they will review the comments and then at a future date they will release a final ruling. Though this is not final, we believe it will happen. It will require a new 11x17 size posting to be added to the Federal Labor Law poster. In our mind the only real question is when will this happen. Our best guess at this point is late spring or early summer of 2011.

Please keep in mind that these are only possibilities at this time. More information will be released in the future.
