Updated FLSA poster is now mandatory

Employers must post new 2023 version

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has released a new version of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) poster. The poster has been updated to reflect recent amendments regarding break time for nursing employees under the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections (PUMP) for Nursing Mothers Act, including:

  • The Nursing Mothers section of the notice is now called Pump at Work.
  • The right to break time to express breast milk previously only applied to employees subject to the FLSA overtime requirement (nonexempt employees). The reference to employees subject to the overtime requirement has been removed.
  • The poster now notes that certain narrow exemptions apply.

Another federal posting change expected soon

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will likely make a mandatory change to the Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal posting to include regulations concerning the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, which goes into effect on June 27, 2023. A mandatory change would make previous versions of that posting non-compliant.

As a result, employers may want to hold off on displaying a new all-in-one poster. The temporary FLSA posting can be displayed alongside an all-in-one poster until all mandatory changes are available.

Subscribers to our update service will receive physical, updated versions of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal (EEO) once these changes become available.
