On July 24, 2009, the current Federal Minimum Wage rate of $6.55 per hour will increase to $7.25 per hour. All covered employers, regardless of size, are required to post the most recent Minimum Wage poster, even if your state’s minimum wage differs.

This is a good time to make sure you’re also displaying the latest Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster based on revisions finalized in November. The new mandated poster went into effect January 16, 2009.

Both of these required posters are available for download from the Department of Labor website at http://www.dol.gov/esa/whd/resources/posters.htm.

Tip: The Federal Government requires display of six posters, all of which are available in a convenient 6-in-1 format from Progressive Business Compliance.
