Alabama has introduced a section in its mandatory Child Labor Laws poster which requires employers to include a new form for employees under the age of 18 on the premises. This new form is part of the general update to record keeping in a business with minors. Employers must now display an Employee Information Form, Proof of Age, and Time Records showing the number of hours worked each day. Child Labor certificate must also be displayed.

New information regarding restrictions that apply to minors and the sale of alcohol has also been added. Immediate family of the alcohol-providing establishment’s owner/operator can now be employed if their work has nothing to do with serving, selling, dispensing, or handing of alcohol.

A minor clarification was also made to the wording in the poster’s punishments section. The words “and/or prosecution” were added.

Lastly, Alabama’s Unemployment Compensation labor law poster now shows proper information in the aftermath of the Department of Industrial Relations and the Alabama Department of Labor merging. A new website address has been added.
