As employers continue to operate with a remote workforce, the Department of Labor (DOL) has issued new guidance concerning regulations related to electronic posting of required notices. The required notices are those related to several federal regulations related to pay practices, required time off, etc. The notice issued on December 29, 2020 as a Field Service Bulletin addresses many questions that have arisen regarding posting requirements given that COVID has created a large portion of the workforce to be remote. The intent of the bulletin is not to have electronic postings replace hard copy postings and the guidance simply re-iterates the requirement for employers to comply with regulations and how the need to adapt to the new workforce environment.
The HR Compliance Bulletin provides an overview of the recently released Field Assistance Bulletin and provides helpful guidance for employers in continuing to meet compliance obligations.
