PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Businesses in South Dakota are being warned to be watchful of poster scams from companies that are selling various federal agency postings that are available at no cost. The Attorney General’s Office and South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation both report the labor law poster scams that are targeting businesses. Attorney General Marty Jackley says in a press release that some unscrupulous companies use notices with official-looking seals to mislead businesses into thinking that the government is contacting them and solicitations threaten to fine businesses if they don’t purchase the labor law posters. Jackley says the posters that businesses are required to display can be acquired from the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation at no cost. Current posters provided by the Department of Labor and Regulation are in compliance through March 7. After that, businesses can get recently updated Family Medical Leave Act postings from their local DLR office or by downloading them at http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/posters/fmlaen.pdf. There are also two state posting requirements that can be downloaded on the Labor Department’s website at http://dlr.sd.gov/employerserv/postingrequirements.aspx. Those who have been victims of poster scams should contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 to file a complaint.
