Mid-Year State Updates

Though the start of the new year is a busy time for wage and labor law updates, it’s critical for employers to stay informed of ever-changing employment laws throughout the year. As we approach the mid-year mark new labor laws and workplace posters will be required for District of Columbia, Nevada, and Oregon employers.

New Employment Laws and Workplace Posters for D.C.

The recently enacted District of Columbia Wage Transparency Omnibus Amendment Act takes effect June 30, 2024. This new law requires employers to include in job postings the minimum and maximum projected salary or hourly wage for the position. Prospective employees must also be informed of the existence of other benefits such as healthcare or bonuses prior to the first interview. The law prohibits employers from screening job applicants based on wage history.

Effective July 1, 2024 employers in the District of Columbia will be required to display the following new posters in their workplace:

  • Time Off to Vote for both the primary and general elections
  • District of Columbia Minimum Wage
  • Employee Rights in the District of Columbia

All businesses within the District of Columbia must display the new posters along with other mandated posting requirements where they are sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. These changes have been reflected in our District of Columbia Labor Law Poster and require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated posters could result in fines.

New Workplace Posters for Nevada

In February 2024, the Nevada Division of Industrial Relations released an updated Workers’ Compensation Notice providing information about the definition of employee and who may complete the Claim for Compensation. Updated location and contact information are included in the new poster.

In April 2024, the Nevada Office of the Labor Commissioner published a Minimum Wage notice stating the elimination of a two-tier minimum wage, the minimum wage applies to all employees unless otherwise exempted, and the minimum wage rate of $12.00 per hour is effective July 1, 2024.

Also in April 2024, the Nevada Office of the Labor Commissioner published a Daily Overtime notice which includes overtime requirements and eligibility, and the elimination of a two-tier minimum wage effective July 1, 2024.

The Nevada Office of the Labor Commissioner released a required posting for Assembly Bill 307 which states the Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation (DETR) shall prepare a notice concerning job training or employment programs conducted by the department within 30 days following the end of each calendar quarter. The notice fulfills DETR’s April 1, 2024 required reporting.

All businesses within the State of Nevada must display the new posters along with other mandated posting requirements where they are sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. These changes have been reflected in our Nevada Labor Law Poster and require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated posters could result in fines.

New Workplace Poster for Oregon

 In March 2024, Oregon OSHA published a revised Know Your Rights poster. The new poster includes several additions to employee rights regarding their safety and health in the workplace. Additionally, the new poster asserts Oregon OSHA’s practice of conducting workplace inspections to ensure compliance with the Oregon Safe Employment Act.

All businesses within the State of Oregon must display the new poster along with other mandated posting requirements where they are sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Oregon Labor Law Poster and requires an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.
