Update Workplace Posters for New Year 2017

Author: Marta Moakley, XpertHR Legal Editor

Many states and municipalities recently have added or updated workplace posters to reflect changes to or additions of minimum wage, paid sick leave and other employee-notification requirements. An employer should review the new and updated posters listed below to be sure its workplace notices are up to date for the new year.

For example, a number of state minimum wage rates have been raised, so affected employers must replace the current poster. However, some states have incorporated changes affecting multiple years into one poster. For example, Arkansas incorporates changes spanning three years into its current poster, so an employer may not need to change the poster until December 2017. Similarly, minimum wage posters for Arkansas, Connecticut, Hawaii, Vermont and Washington may not need to be replaced because they already contain information regarding 2017 wage requirements.

For more in-depth coverage, XpertHR provides its Federal Workplace Labor and Employment Law Posters chart with corresponding State Workplace and Employment Law Posters charts.

The Employment Law Manual, Quick Reference and Policies and Documents tools will continue to be updated as additional changes to federal and state notice requirements become effective.

1 Employers must provide notice to employees and prominently display posters on the new minimum wage increase by December 15, 2016.

2 Sacramento, California did not provide XpertHR with a copy of a government-issued model notice upon request. It is unclear whether the city will provide a model notice to employers.

3 In addition to posting requirements, an employer is required to provide written notice of the right to be free from discriminatory or unfair employment practices to:

  • New employees at the start of employment; and
  • Existing employees within 120 days after the law's effective date (December 8, 2016).

4 Please note that it is not yet clear if Bernalillo County, New Mexico will issue new notices for 2017.
