When it comes to Delaware, we should take a closer look at the requirements surrounding the Delaware Compliance Posters. It isn’t because they are so different than the compliance posting requirements of many other states.
On the contrary, Delaware requires that employers place Delaware Compliance Posters in conspicuous, easy to see locations in the work site, so that all employees have a chance to read them if they want to. That’s similar to many other states.
Also, the rules and requirements of Delaware Compliance Posters dictate that six postings go up in every work site in the state regarding certain federal labor requirements. These six requirements are included in the rules of many other states, not just the Delaware Compliance Posters requirements.
What sets Delaware apart in its rules for compliance posters is that the state requires seven state-related postings. These include the child labor posting, the workers’ compensation posting, the payment of wages posting, the breaks posting, the minimum wage posting, the discrimination notice, and the unemployment poster.
We have some time here in this blog to consider what exactly goes into these state-related postings in the Delaware Compliance Posters. For instance, the unemployment poster contains information on what makes an employee eligible for unemployment coverage. An employee must have been paid by their employer at least 36 times their weekly benefits amount in the base period.
The poster goes on to explain what an employee could expect from their unemployment benefit. The going rate is 1/46 of the wages of the employee’s two highest wage quarters in a base period. But never can unemployment benefits be less than $20 in a week or more than $330 in a week.
The minimum wage posting in Delaware Compliance Posters, on the other hand, explains how $5.15 is the going minimum wage in Delaware. But it also explains how there are special rates for certain employee groups, such as disable workers or apprentices.
