You can obtain the notices free of charge by contacting DOL’s Wage & Hour Division at 1-866-4-USWAGE (1-866-487-9243) or you can download and print the notice yourself. Employers may satisfy the notice requirements of the law by emailing or direct mailing the notice to employees, or posting the notice on an employee information internal or external website. Since the law only applies to current employees, the notice does not have to be shared with laid-off individuals
