e-Alert: Monthly Labor Law Posters Updates October 2022

By October 28, 2022No Comments


Employment Poster requirements 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 Poster in a central location.

HR Knowledge monitors and tracks employment and labor law postings to keep our clients up to date and in compliance with all posting requirements.
