HR Partners receives numerous calls each year from our clients (or potential clients) about getting an “updated” Department of Labor (“DOL”) poster for their businesses. They receive phone calls or emails from very aggressive companies that state you “have to” get the new updated DOL poster ASAP or you will not be compliant with the law. Clients share with us how much they have spent in the past, or how much the current company is charging for this service. With multiple locations, this expense can add up quickly if multiple posters are required.
Bottom line: You don’t need a new poster AND you don’t have to spend a lot of money. Since many federal employment laws have not changed for years, the probability of your organization needing a new poster each year is low. But, if you need one, you can always send us a picture of what you currently have, and we can advise if you need an updated poster. If an updated poster is needed, we find that it is easier to buy the “all in one poster,” which encompasses critical state and federal requirements in a compact form. They are inexpensive and accurate.
We typically recommend buying labor law posters through the Labor Law Center.
You can buy them from their website here: https://www.laborlawcenter.com/kansas-labor-law-posters.
If you have employees working from home, or you want to go electronic with this requirement (and you have an intranet system), please let us know and we can advise how to get this accomplished.
