Are there any employer posting requirements under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)?

Author: Demetrius O. Holloway, Stites & Harbison

Yes. A covered employer is required to post and keep posting on its premises a notice explaining the FMLA's provisions and provide information concerning the procedures for filing complaints of FMLA violations with the Wage and Hour Division of the Department of Labor. This notice must be posted in a conspicuous place where employees are employed, and also must be posted prominently where it can be readily seen by employees and applicants (i.e., large enough to be easily read with fully legible text). An FMLA-covered employer must post this notice even if the employer does not have any FMLA-eligible employees at the worksite.
