We’re printing new state and federal workplace posters due to some material changes that have been made this year — including a new mandatory supplement for federal contractors to the “Equal Opportunity is the Law” posting that was released this week. Here are the recent updates (below), and you can order new sets online — or join our free subscription service to take the burden off of yourself when it comes to tracking changes:
- Indiana Teen Worker Hours: The differentiation between “your work permit allows you to work” and “with parental permission you may work”; maximum hours; break requirements; graduates/withdrawn from school information.
- OSHA Job Safety and Health: It’s the Law (updated in early 2015): The federal OSHA poster was given a new look. The changes were mostly visual, although two new bullet points were added, stating employers must: (1) Report to OSHA all work-related fatalities within eight hours, and all inpatient hospitalizations, amputations and losses of an eye within 24 hours; and (2) Provide required training to all workers in a language and vocabulary they can understand.
- Supplement to “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” Poster for Federal Contractors: This supplement was released in September 2015 as part of the OFCCP’s final rule promoting pay transparency. It requires that federal contractors and subcontractors amend equal employment opportunity information to state that it is unlawful to discharge or otherwise discriminate against employees or applicants who inquire about, discuss or disclose their compensation or the compensation of other employees or applicants. It also contains information on federal contractors’ obligations regarding affirmative action and employing individuals with disabilities and veterans.
