Federal Poster Updates: June 2023

UPDATE: GovDocs is pleased to announce we’ve completed the shipment process for the recent federal poster update and believe most deliveries will be complete by Friday, Aug. 25, depending on transit time.

As you may know, two mandatory federal labor law poster changes were recently announced, which will result in an update to your GovDocs federal posters.

  • The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on June 14, 2023, updated its Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal poster; it does not have to be displayed until June 27, 2023
  • Previously, the U.S. Department of Labor in April 2023 released an updated Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) Minimum Wage poster

With these federal updates, GovDocs is committed to ensuring your locations are compliant.

Background Information

The EEOC’s Know Your Rights poster, which previously updated in October 2022, saw some general formatting changes, along with new language under two sections:

  • What Types of Employment Discrimination are Illegal?
  • What Employment Practices can be Challenged as Discriminatory?

In the April 2023 FLSA poster update, the changes are the result of the Provide Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act, which passed last year.

How Do We Maintain Compliance Until Posters Are Delivered?

As long as customers print and display the new EEOC and FLSA posters, available in the links above, they will be compliant with the federal posting requirements.

Federal Contractor Poster

Updated in the spring of 2023, there are now two federal contractor minimum wage posters. However, determining which needs to be displayed depends on the contract.

For employers that entered into, renewed or extended their federal contract on or after Jan. 30, 2022, they will need to display the new poster. For contracts before that time, employers still need to display the old poster.

So, federal contractors should review all their contracts – some employers may need to display both federal contractor minimum wage posters.
