Diviney Provides Perspective on Workplace Postings for Remote EmployeesFebruary 17, 2021 |
John Diviney spoke with Newsday for the article “What businesses need to know about workplace posting compliance for remote workers.” The story details the guidance issued by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage & Hour Division regarding worker notification in a time when many employees are remote.
John notes that the guidance clarifies “what do you do when your employees are no longer on-site to visually see them.” Under normal circumstances, employers must post notices regarding Equal Employment Opportunity, Occupational Safety and Health Act; Family and Medical Leave Act; and Fair Labor Standards Act, John says. Those are federal requirements. And while the recent DOL guidance applies to federal postings, New York State has its own posting requirements that employers should be aware of, he says.
The goal of the guidance, according to John, is accessibility of the information: “They don’t want a situation where you have to call your HR person” to find it.
