South Dakota law requires a workplace posting informing employees about availability of reemployment assistance (unemployment compensation). This posting has recently been revised to conform with additional U.S. DOL requirements.

Per new guidance under UIPL 13-20, this posting notice must be provided by employers to workers individually and at the time of separation. Employers have flexibility in the method of communication to meet this requirement (such as letters, emails, text messages or flyers).
