Labor Law Updates expected in 2018 and What You’ll Need to Do as an Employer

As 2018 is quickly approaching, now is the time for employers, business owners, & HR compliance professionals to educate themselves on upcoming labor law changes that take effect 1/1/2018. We’ve gone ahead and gathered a full list of all mandatory labor law poster updates by state that require poster updates in order to maintain compliance.

The most expected update to occur is state minimum wage rates. Since the Federal Minimum Wage hasn’t changed since 2009, most states have issued their own minimum wage laws to match the cost of living in their areas. Many highly populated states increase their minimum wage rates the first of every New Year. Minimum Wage posters are one of the required posters that come included in the All-In-One 2018 Labor law Poster which also includes OSHA, Paid Sick Leave, Discrimination, Workers’ Compensation and all additional mandatory posters applicable to your state. Order the new 2018 version for a professional laminated labor law poster that will include the updated minimum wage laws.

Below is a list of the states with new rate increases for 2018 and expected revised labor law posting requirements:
