Compliance Alert: Family and Medical Leave Act Poster Insert

whd-logo-2Now that President Bush has signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which amends the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employers must update their FMLA postings.

Under the FMLA, all covered employers are required to display and keep displayed a poster prepared by the Department of Labor summarizing the major provisions of The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and telling employees how to file a complaint. The poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can see it. A poster must be displayed at all locations even if there are no eligible employees.

A copy of the standard FMLA poster prepared by the Department (WH 1420) is available for posting in the workplace at the DOL’s website. The poster is also available in Spanish.

The DOL has also published a single-page insert poster, which includes the NDAA amendment. The insert is also available at the DOL’s website. It’s available here for download and use.
