The Department of Labor (DOL) requires that certain notices be posted in the workplace. Posting requirements vary by statute; that is, not all employers are covered by each of DOL’s statutes and thus may not be required to post a specific notice. For example, every employer of employees subject to the Fair Labor Standards Act’s (FLSA) minimum wage law and OSHA provisions must post, and keep posted, notices explaining these Acts in a conspicuous place in all of their establishments so as to permit employees to readily read it; but if the employer is considered a small business it may not be covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act and thus would not be subject to posting notices related to those statutes. Your posted notice, if any, may be modified to explain that the FLSA minimum wage and overtime pay requirements do not apply to ministers. Another poster required to hang in a prominent location for employees to read is one explaining that it is generally unlawful for an employer to require its employees or job applicant to take a polygraph test. Finally, notice that employment discrimination is prohibited must also be displayed. However, it may be modified appropriately to explain specific exemptions allow religious employers to discriminate in employment decisions on the basis of religion. The Department provides electronic copies of the required posters on the Internet for free atdol.gov/oasam/programs/osdbu/sbrefa/poster/matrix.htm. Information to determine employer notification responsibilitiesis also found there. However, if you thinkyour employment-related question may be handled by another federal or state government agency, or for the number of the Wage and Hour Office closest to you, call the Wage-Hour toll-free help line at 866-4USWAGE (866-487-9243).
