Revised Workplace Posters

    Revised Workplace Posters

                Due to new rights granted under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) and the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act (PUMP Act), employers must display a new version of workplace posters. 

    The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently released two new posters with additional information about the new laws. The posters broadly explain workers' rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) also has updated its “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal” poster with new information about the PWFA.

    Employers can print and post the free versions of FLSA and FMLA posters from the DOL's website ; the EEOC's website also has a free version of its poster . The posters are available in English and other languages. Displaying the DOL's and EEOC's posters fulfills the notice requirement for employers. Covered employers must display them in a conspicuous place in all of their establishments. There is no size requirement for the posters, but employees must be able to read them easily.

    The PWFA took effect on June 27 and applies to employers with at least 15 employees. The PUMP Act took effect in December 2022, with changes to remedies that took effect on April 28. It allows some exceptions for small businesses.
