Nebraska Poster Changes

Nebraska Minimum Wage Update: Nebraska has released the new Minimum Wage notice. The new wage as of 1/1/15 is $8.00. On 1/1/16 it will increase to $9.00. Both wages are included on the new notice. Effective Date: January 1, 2015

Unemployment Insurance: The Nebraska Unemployment Insurance poster has been updated with information regarding a claimant's requirement to expand the scope of their job search if they have been receiving benefits for over six weeks. The poster has also been updated to include when the Commissioner may waive the search for work requirement, and when a claimant may be ineligible for benefits. Effective Date: July, 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
