Major changes to Child Labor Regulations
Effective July 19, 2010

On July 19, 2010, the Final Rule designed to protect today’s working youth from hazardous conditions in the workplace went into effect. The Wage and Hour Division's Final Rule sets into motion rule changes to seven non-agricultural hazardous occupation orders, lists new prohibitions impacting the employment of youth under the age of 18 years, expands youth workplace opportunities, and modernizes child labor provision for the 21st century.

The Final Rule is said to represent the “most ambitious and far-reaching revisions to the child labor regulations in the last thirty years and marks another step forward in the Department’s ongoing effort to promote positive, safe work experiences for young workers.” The updates set forth in the new Final Rule will impact how the DOL interprets the child labor provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Our analysts are monitoring the total effect of this Final Rule very closely, specifically the impact it may have on the current Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA) poster.

Impact Report: New FMLA interpretations regarding leave for same-sex partners

On June 22, 2010, the DOL released new interpretations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The additional guidance clarifies that an individual of a same-sex relationship is entitled to FMLA leave to care for child of their partner (to bond with the child following placement, or to care for the child if the child had a serious health condition) due to the fact that the individual stands in loco parentis to the child.

Simply stated, a partner in a same-sex relationship may now stand in loco parentis if he/she 1) intends to assume the responsibilities of a parent, and 2) provides either day-to-day care or financial support for the child, as is required by the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

On May 21, 2008, Former President George W. Bush signed the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) of 2008 into law. GINA includes two distinct titles. Title I addresses the use of genetic information in health insurance. Title II of GINA prohibits employers from collecting genetic information from employees, and using this information to make decisions regarding employment.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) poster has been updated to include information regarding the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.

Employers are required to post notices explaining the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, disability and genetic information.

In accordance with GINA, civil money penalties for violation of minimum wage, overtime, and child labor provisions have been increased. The updated maximum penalties are included our 2009 Federal 6-in-1 poster. The updates to the FSLA poster are considered recommended.
