AL Poster Changes

Federal Changes

Federal E-Verify/Right to Work

The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Special Counsel has released an updated Federal E-Verify/Right to Work poster that must be displayed by employers. This mandatory update clarifies that employers cannot reject documents because they have a future expiration date or terminate an employee because of E-Verify without giving the employee an opportunity to resolve the problem. Effective Date: 9/17/13.

The Family and Medical Leave Act Notice Update

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.
