Updated DOL Posters for FLSA and EPPA

Lilly Hummel

The Department of Labor (DOL) has issued updated posters to reflect the requirement from the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 that DOL and other federal agencies periodically adjust penalties to reflect inflation. Specifically, the posters have been updated for the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA). The revised posters took effect on August 1, 2016.

To eliminate the need to reprint posters each time the amount of civil monetary penalties changes due to inflation, the primary change in the posters is the removal of the specific amount of civil monetary penalties per violation. Both revised posters contain only a general statement that civil monetary penalties may be assessed for violations. All DOL posters can be found here.
