RI Labor Law Poster update 7/1/2014

Rhode Island’s minimum wage increased to $8.00 effective 1/1/2014. New labor law posters are required to be posted for all RI employers. You can find them at no charge on the RI Department of Labor & Training’s web site. I recommend the combination poster. http://www.dlt.ri.gov/lmi/business/post.htm

In addition, the RI Commission for Human Rights has released a new poster “Discrimination is Illegal” with updated legislation that took effect May 2014. The poster was delayed and recently released. Employers must display the poster prominently. “State law also prohibits employers from asking applicants about arrest records, and makes it unlawful to ask about convictions until at or after a first interview (with certain exceptions).”  http://www.dlt.ri.gov/lmi/pdf/DiscriminationPoster.pdf
