Wyoming Poster Changes

OSHA Poster Update: The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services has released an updated OSHA poster that must be displayed by employers. This mandatory update reflects new penalty amounts for OSHA violations. Employers can be fined up to $7,000 for each serious OSHA violation and optional penalties of up to $7,000 for each non-serious violation. Effective Date: May, 2014

The Family and Medical Leave Act notice has been revised to reflect the changes caused by the recently approved rule. The definition of "Veteran" has been revised to include both those who serve and those discharged in the past 5 years (previously it was only those who served). The explicit definition of "Serious Injury or Illness" was removed as well, replaced by a notice that there are differences between the definition of "Serious Injury or Illness" for a service member or veteran, and "Serious Health Condition" under the FMLA. Effective Date: March 8, 2013
