In April 2023, the U.S. Department of Labor published a revised Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) poster, available HERE. Aside from the change in color, there are no substantive revisions to the poster. Accordingly, the April 2016 and February 2013 versions of the poster still fulfill the posting requirements, although it is recommended that employers use the new poster going forward.
As a reminder, covered employers are required to display the poster in a conspicuous location in the workplace, where it can be seen by all job applicants and employees. The poster must be on display at all work locations of covered employers even if there are no employees eligible for FMLA leave at a particular work site. Employers with eligible employees must also provide a general notice containing the same information on the poster in its employee handbook or other written materials. If no written materials exist, employers must distribute this general notice to new employees upon hire.
If you need assistance reviewing your policies to ensure compliance with FMLA notice requirements, please reach out to the NFC Attorney with whom you typically work or call us at 973.665.9100.
