Labor Law Information:
Federal Posting Requirements
Generally, federal workplace posters must be displayed or posted in conspicuous places where they are easily visible to all employees. The FMLA, EEO, and EPPA posters are also required to be placed where they can be seen by applicants for employment. Failure to post required federal notices may result civil money penalties, contract actions or legal sanctions, depending on the notice. With a few exceptions (FMLA, MSPA and Executive Order 13496), regulations do not require posting of notices in Spanish or other languages.
Posting requirements vary by statute. Since not all employers are covered by each statute, some employers may not be required to post a specific notice. For example, some small businesses may not be covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act and would not be subject to the Act's posting requirements. You may wish to consult with legal counsel regarding posting requirements for your business.
State Employment Notices
Most states also have employment notice posting regulations. ComplianceSigns.com has researched the specific notices required for each state. Some states, including New York and Texas, require different posters depending on the employer's worker's compensation coverage or some other status. We have created separate posters to meet these unique requirements, as well. Some local governments may dictate additional notices. Check local laws.
