The Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) applies to employers with 50 or more employees in 20 or more work weeks in the current or preceding calendar year. The FMLA requires covered employers to post a General FMLA Notice that explains not only the protections and requirements of the FMLA, but also how employees can file complaints with the U.S. Department of Labor alleging violations of the FMLA. The notice should be displayed in a conspicuous area, and posted regardless of whether any employees are FMLA eligible. Earlier this year, the DOL released a new version of this notice. Although employers can continue with the existing poster, the new poster presents the required information in a more user friendly manner and its use ensures the most recent required information is posted.
