NC: Employer Posting Requirement Amended

Amended Posting Provisions Effective December 31, 2017

A law in North Carolina amends a posting requirement to add information about employee classification.

Posting Requirement
Under current law, a poster summarizing the major provisions of the Wage and Hour Act must be displayed in every establishment subject to the Wage and Hour Act. Under the amendments, this poster must also include notice indicating certain items in plain language, summarized as follows:

  • Any worker who is defined as an employee by certain legal provisions must be treated as an employee unless the individual is an independent contractor.
  • Any employee who believes that the employee has been misclassified as an independent contractor by the employee's employer may report the suspected misclassification to the state Employee Classification Section within the Industrial Commission.
  • The physical location, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address where alleged incidents of employee misclassification occurred may be reported to the state Employee Classification Section within the Industrial Commission.

These amended posting provisions are effective December 31, 2017; however, the law contains multiple effective dates. For additional provisions and information, click here to read the text of the law.
