Employers must notify employees in writing, at the time of hire, of the normal hours and wages agreed upon, the time and place of payment, and the deductions that will be made from wages. Notice of deductions includes payments to insurance programs.
Employers with employees covered by the federal FLSA must post notices outlining the federal overtime regulations. The notices must be posted conspicuously and in enough places so employees can see them as they enter and exit the workplace. Employers can obtain these posters from:
