Changes to Kentucky Labor Law Posters as of February 2019

ALERT! Changes to Kentucky Labor Law Posters as of February 2019

The Kentucky Wage and Hour Law poster, Kentucky Child Labor Laws poster, Kentucky Wage Discrimination Because of Sex poster, as well as the Safety and Health on the Job poster have been updated as of February 2019 and as such, employers need to replace these posters to reflect the changes.

The changes to the Kentucky Wage and Hour poster include a new contact phone number and other technical changes. The Kentucky Child Labor Laws poster was changed to include a street address. Technical changes to the Kentucky Wage Discrimination Because of Sex poster include the addition of the street address and removal of the fax number. The only change on the Safety and Health on the Job poster is based on the Governor abolishing the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board and transferring those duties to Office of the Secretary, Ky Labor Cabinet.

Links to all the posters are included above. For links to all other posters, including those required by federal law visit the KLC HR Blog. Keep in mind Kentucky statutes and federal regulations enforced by agencies within the Kentucky Labor Cabinet and the U.S. Department of Labor require that certain posters or notices be posted in a conspicuous area in the workplace. Posting requirements vary by statute; that is, not all employers are covered by each of the Department of Labor's federal or state statutes and thus may not be required to post a specific notice. For more information on this subject or any other personnel-related matter, contact Andrea Shindlebower Main or Courtney Risk Straw in KLC’s Municipal Law and Training Department.
