Massachusetts Labor Law Poster

National Safety Compliance has put their LP9MA Massachusetts Labor Law Poster - Laminated on hold to ensure they capture any changes for the expansion of the current Maternal Leave Law.  The law has been updated to include men called Paternal Leave.  The law goes in to effect on April 7, 2015 and we are waiting the release of the updated posting information.

You may continue to monitor this situation by visiting this blog for the release of the Massachusetts poster.

2015 Louisiana Labor Law Poster - Laminated

We are commonly receiving phone calls and emails regarding the release of the 2015 Louisiana State Labor Law Poster.  Every year the Louisiana Workforce Commission updates the income limits for eligibility regarding the Earned Income Credit.  The usual release of this new posting is in early February, but this year it still has not been released as of mid-March.

National Safety Compliance has attempted to receive an update by calling various offices, but the usual response is to keep checking the web site.  We are monitoring the web site for the new, updated posting.  As soon as it is available, we will be releasing the 2015 Louisiana Labor Law Poster.  Any orders that are pending will be processed and shipped as soon as the posting is released.

Thank you,
