Employers must post certain labor notices, which vary from state to state and federal agencies, for their employees to read. For example, California requires employers to post a payday notice which outlines regular paydays with a place and time of payment, while Arizona has no such requirement. Requirements can also vary depending on the nature of the business, such as the required notices for federal contractors.
Employers must also keep postings current for matters such as updates to federal and state minimum wage requirements. Minimum wage requirements vary from state to state, as well as with federal requirements, and employers are required to pay the highest mandated wage. So while the Federal minimum wage is $7.25, Arizona employees are paid $7.90, DEPENDING on the type of business. You see the problem.
It’s easy to overlook these notices and many businesses forget to update them every year. Having proper notices posted will help ensure compliance with the most current laws. Fortunately, there is an abundance of help online such as the following websites:
