e-Alert: Monthly Labor Law Posters Updates March 2023

By March 30, 2023No Comments

Workplace labor law compliance poster notices are continuously changing throughout the year. In addition to minimum wage changes, there are often state, local, and industry-specific policy changes that require poster updates. If you have one or more employees, your business is required by law to post a current State and Federal Employment Law Poster in a central location visible to all employees.

HR Knowledge monitors and tracks these labor law updates by providing a roundup of these compliance changes each month.

Below are recent state and local workplace compliance poster/notice changes.
