Many states had Major changes to their poster effective this month. The following states had an increase in Minimum Wage, which requires an updated poster: AZ, CO, FL, MT, NH, OH, OR, VT & WA. Other states added new required postings - CT added the Paid Sick Leave posting and NJ added the Employer Obligation to Maintain & Report Records.
