There are a variety of upcoming poster changes in states and Washington DC. Minimum wage increases and new laws are expected to bring a mandatory poster change to more than 20 states in early 2022.
Many changes take effect on January 1, 2022, with New York minimum wage increase and posting updates taking effect on December 31, 2022. New Jersey’s misclassification law takes effect on February 1, 2022.
Expected posting changes are based on regulatory changes or laws that were passed in 2021. Updates are expected in 2022, but mandatory changes can occur at any time.
Federal Contractor Labor Poster Changes:
Federal contractor minimum wage will increase to $11.25 per hour on January 1, 2022. Employers covered by the executive order will need to display updated minimum wage rates.
Do not forget any COVID related postings through state and local guidelines as well. Signing up for a poster service will provide updates as required under state and federal law. During all compliance audits I have found mistakes with postings. I’m happy to work with any organization on posting requirements.
