General Employment Posters Updating
January is a good time for a quick check of your employment posters to ensure all are up-to-date. The state of Maine updated several employment posters in late 2019 and New Hampshire has updated its employment discrimination poster. In Massachusetts, a Paid Family and Medical Leave poster is now required for this new benefit.

Posters and employee notices for your other states of operation and local/municipal postings should also be reviewed for any updates needed.
Annual OSHA Log Posting
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates that all employers who are required to maintain the OSHA 300 Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, post a summary of the previous year’s log between February 1 and April 30 each year.
The summary (OSHA Form 300A) must be certified by a company executive and posted in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted.
How Do You Know If You Need to Maintain and Post an OSHA Log?
Employers in non-exempt industries with more than 10 employees are required to maintain an OSHA log and post the summary.
If your organization is required to maintain an OSHA Injury and Illness Log, you must complete the Summary Log Form 300A and post it even if there have been no recordable injuries or illnesses. The summary you post includes the recordable injury and illness data that occurred in the previous year and reports total number and type of injuries and illnesses and missed workdays as recorded on Form 300.
Some larger employers and those in certain high-risk industries are also required to submit records electronically by March 2, 2020. See the OSHA website for information on the industries who must report electronically and the reporting process.
