    GovDocs Inc. Urges Employer Compliance with Mandatory Labor Law Posting



    ST. PAUL, Minn., July 15 /EMWNews/ -- With the second of

three increases in the Federal Minimum Wage slated for Thursday, July 24,

2008, GovDocs Inc. (http://www.govdocs.com) reminds all U.S. businesses to up

eligible employee wages to $6.55, and to display the proper labor law

postings within each office location. To be compliant, all businesses with

at least one employee must display the new regulation - regardless of

whether staff are hourly, salaried, or compensated at above $6.55 per hour.



    "Without the publicity that occurred when Congress enacted the wage

increase last year, it's easy for busy employers to forget that a new wage

needs to be phased in - and posted - each July, through 2009," explains

Nina Slattery, General Manager of GovDocs, Inc. GovDocs is a

Minnesota-based labor law compliance vendor who works with many of the

nation's largest corporations.



    The Federal-on-One poster from GovDocs features compliant Federal

Minimum Wage postings for 2007 through 2009. It also includes, in English

or Spanish, the latest OSHA, USERRA, and other national regulations, giving

companies one comprehensive, laminated resource.



    "For less than $30, and with just one telephone call or web visit,

employers can establish compliance - a small price to pay for peace of

mind," states Slattery.



    GovDocs offers a full suite of labor law compliance products, including

materials for all 50 states and Washington, D.C., and an automatic update

service that proactively sends new posters to employers whenever changes

occur that impact their businesses.
