Updated Total Labor Law Poster Helps Texas Employers Comply With Poster Mandates2018-09-06
Texas is justly renowned for its gigantic size, and the same could equally well be said to describe the burden that employers in the Lone Star State face in making sure they are complying with all the requirements in federal and state laws for Texas labor law posters in the workplace. And since these various posters are periodically revised, it’s not enough for an employer to have once checked out compliance with all the required posters and notices. After all, an employer can be assessed penalties not just when the workplace lacks a required labor law poster, but also when the workplace is displaying an outdated version of a required workplace poster.
Fortunately, a simple, easy solution is now at hand, thanks to the Total Labor Law Poster, newly revised to be in full compliance with every general posting requirement affecting Texas employers, all combined in one sturdy, simple 27″x 39″ poster. The Total Labor Law Poster will bring the full text of every federal and state labor law workplace poster. The numerous federal posters that are included on the Total Labor Law Poster include those required under all these federal mandates: Fair Labor Standards Act (minimum wage and overtime); Family and Medical Leave Act (unpaid leave for a worker’s own illness, to care for a sick family member, or following childbirth or adoption); Employee Polygraph Protection Act – all three laws enforced by the US Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division; Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s “Equal Employment Opportunity Is THE LAW” poster (covering a variety of anti-discrimination laws, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act); Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s poster on federal job health and safety requirements; Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)-Veterans Benefit Improvement Act poster (these laws gives workers who volunteer for or are called to military service job reinstatement rights and forbid job discrimination on the basis of military service status); US Department of Justice-required notice against job bias based on immigration status; Notice on employment tax withholding required by the Internal Revenue Service. In addition to all those federally-required posters and notices, the Total Labor Law Poster for Texas employers includes state-required labor law posters in all these areas: Notice 6, the recently revised notice from the Texas Workers’ Compensation Council (for employers subscribing to workers’ compensation policy for their workers); Child labor law notice required in workplaces where minors are employed; Workplace poster required by Texas’ equal-employment opportunity agency; Notice providing information on the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act; Notice on the ombudsman program set up by the Office of Injured Employee Counsel to resolve disputes in the state’s workers’ compensation program; Workplace notice on the Texas Payment of Wages Act, also known as the Texas Payday Law. Smart employers will not want to take a chance that they have missed an update, which not only invites problems with regulators, but also means the employer and its workforce do not have the benefit of the latest information. They know that having the Total Labor Law Poster in each workplace will ensure full compliance with all poster and notice requirements and take a Texas-sized load off their minds.
