Required labor law postings in the workplace
Right around the new year, we tend to receive many questions from clients asking about required federal and state labor law postings for their workplaces. These questions arise when clients receive mail from various for-profit services that tell them that they are required to post certain notifications to their employees. These for-profit services may imply that they are the sole source of these documents.
While it’s true they provide many of the postings in a combined format for a fee, it is not necessary for you to utilize their services to meet your federal and state reporting requirements.
Employee notification requirements may vary from employer to employer depending on the state in which employees work, the size of the organization, and the type of industry.
There are many federal agencies within the Department of Labor that have different requirements for workplace posters. These agencies include Wage and Hour Division [WHD], Occupational Safety and Health Administration [OSHA], and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs [OFCCP]. And those are just to name a few!
You can learn more about what requirements your organization may be subject to, visit the Department of Labor website to find free copies of your required workplace posters.
