HRDirect offers updates on changing regs

HRDirect helps employers keep up with the constantly changing federal regulations.

When you purchase federal or state law posters from the company, you get a free, one-year Compliance Notification Service that automatically alerts you of any poster updates due to a mandatory change.

HRdirect posters are developed by a team of attorneys, legal experts and researchers who continually monitor and interpret posting requirements.

A recent example of a change is on Feb. 26, 2010, the California Department of Industrial Relations released a mandatory change to the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) labor poster. The updated California/OSHA poster now includes a free worker information hotline number -- (866) 924-9757 -- for the California Department of Industrial Relations. Minor address changes were made to the headquarters and district offices, as well.

While these may seem like small revisions, they are mandatory, HRDirect notes. That means all California employers must display the updated posting -- or risk fines for non-compliance.

As the poster indicates: California law provides job safety and health protection for workers under the Califormia/OSHA program. This California labor poster explains the basic requirements and procedures for compliance with the state's job safety and health laws and regulations. The law requires that this poster be displayed.

The pace of labor poster changes in today's ever-changing regulatory environment is brisk, says HRDirect. With more than 150 state changes and three federal changes since 2007, most businesses need help keeping up. That's why many employers are turning to dedicated third-party poster providers for easy, affordable posting compliance.

"Complying with labor law posting regulations requires understanding the nuances of the laws, and that often calls for legal expertise," says Ashley Kaplan, compliance attorney with HRdirect.
