Important New Posters from California, Colorado, and Nevada

A highlight of several recent labor law poster releases that employers should know about, brought to you by the GovDocs Employment Law and Compliance Team.   

In this monthly series, the GovDocs Employment Law and Compliance Team highlights several recent labor law poster releases that employers need to know about.   

California’s Notice to Employees – UI & DI & Paid Family Leave Poster

With several labor law poster updates already having taken place this year, California has now fully reformatted and streamlined its Notice to Employees – UI & DI & Paid Family Leave Poster.  

Notably, instead of providing instructions on how to file a new unemployment insurance, disability insurance, or paid family leave claim, the poster now provides just the links to the appropriate California Employment Development Department (EDD) website on how employees can apply for benefits.  

As a reminder, the Notice to Employees – UI & DI & Paid Family Leave poster is required for employers that provide unemployment and disability insurance as well as paid family leave to their employees. There are also separate posters for employers who are only subject to unemployment insurance or disability insurance and paid family leave. The EDD has released optional Spanish versions of all three of the above posters as well. 

The GovDocs Update Program is currently shipping new posters out to California customers.  

Edgewater, Colorado Minimum Wage Poster

The City of Edgewater recently released its new Minimum Wage poster, which is required to be displayed in English and Spanish by all employers within the geographic boundaries of Edgewater.  

Previously, in the Spring of 2023, Edgewater City Council adopted Ordinance 2023-07, creating a new city minimum wage effective Jan. 1, 2024. Under the ordinance, the minimum wage increase schedule for the next five years is as follows:  

Date  Minimum Wage 
Jan. 1, 2024  $15.02 
Jan. 1, 2025  $16.52 
Jan. 1, 2026  $18.17 
Jan. 1, 2027  $19.99 
Jan. 1, 2028  $21.99 
Jan. 1, 2029, and annually thereafter  Increase by annual rate of inflation (CPI) or to match the Denver minimum wage in effect. 

 

For additional information on Edgewater’s minimum wage ordinance, please review our previous Employment Law News blog on Edgewater.  

GovDocs is currently shipping new posters out to impacted customer locations in Edgewater.  

Nevada Daily Overtime & Minimum Wage Annual Bulletins

Nevada’s Department of Business and Industry released updated versions of its Minimum Wage Annual Bulletin and Daily Overtime Annual Bulletin for 2024, in anticipation of its statewide minimum wage increase to $12.00, effective July 1, 2024.  

Additionally, Nevada will remove the two-tier minimum wage requirements that will be eliminated on July 1, 2024, from the Minimum Wage Annual Bulletin. 

Previously, a Nevada employer could pay an employee a “lower tier” wage if qualifying health benefits were offered or made available to the employee. However, Nevada voters passed a ballot measure in 2022 that amended the state constitution so the applicable minimum wage on and after July 1, 2024, will apply to all employees, regardless of whether qualifying health benefits are offered.  

In addition to the $12.00 minimum wage update, the Daily Overtime Annual Bulletin was also updated to include the new wage rates for which daily overtime may be applicable, effective July 1, 2024. Under Nevada law, non-exempt employees who earn less than $18.00 per hour are eligible for overtime at 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay for (1) over 8 hours of work in a 24-hour period or (2) over 40 hours of work in a work week. Further, non-exempt employees that make more than $18.00 are eligible for overtime at 1.5 times the employee’s regular rate of pay for over 40 hours of work in a work week.  

Employers are required to display both bulletins in English, with the display of Spanish versions being optional. 

Both GovDocs Update Program and Spanish Update Program customers will receive the above applicable posters for their Nevada locations this month. 

Conclusion

As we head into summer, jurisdictions at both the state and local levels are continuing to release labor law posters. Employers should verify that their locations have the most up-to-date posters available, a process that can be made more convenient and reliable with an annual labor law poster subscription.
