Frequently Asked Questions
What labor law posters are required for my business?
Both state and federal labor law posters are required for businesses. If a business has one or more employees, it is required by the law to post federal, state and OSHA mandatory posters. More specifically, the following six postings must appear in each workplace location: federal minimum wage, Employee Polygraph Protection, OSHA, FMLA, USERRA, and EEO.
Where should my business display these labor law posters?
Labor law posters should be displayed somewhere apparent to all employees on a daily basis, such as a break room or main lobby. If you have multiple locations, then each workplace should display its own posters.
Do my posters need to be multilingual?
If your business is located in one or more of the following states, you are required to post labor law posters in both English and Spanish: AZ, CA, FL, GA, NM, NC, NY, TX. If you do not fall into this category, it is not mandatory to display bilingual posters; however it is highly recommended if you happen to have Spanish-speaking employees.
If you employ individuals who speak a language other than English or Spanish, it would be recommended to contact Labor agencies to obtain labor law literature in the appropriate languages so that your employees are informed of their rights.
How often do I need to update my labor law posters?
Whenever Federal, State, and OSHA agencies make any labor law changes, it is vital to update your mandatory labor law posters to avoid receiving a violation. Often, state and federal agencies may change these laws without notifying individual businesses, so it is important to stay up to date for any changes made.
Do I have to change my posters every year?
The frequency of Labor Laws varies by state. Employers must change posters when the State, Federal or OSHA agencies make legislative or regulatory changes.
What happens if my business is not compliant with labor law posting regulations?
If a business is not in compliance with current federal and state labor law poster standards, they are in jeopardy of receiving a fine or citation. Additionally, being in compliance with required postings, reminds supervisors of their obligations to uphold the law, to protect workers from injury, discrimination, harassment, and other important State, Federal, and OSHA requirements.
What is the penalty for failing to display labor law posters?
Federal and State fines are imposed by various agencies. These fines may vary. Failure to comply with posting regulations can result in fines of up to $17,000 per location (29 USC Sec. 666(i) and 29 USC Sec. 2005). Examples of the most common fines are:
- Federal FMLA $100 per offense.
- The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) may bring court actions and assess civil penalties as well.
- For failing to post the Federal OSHA Poster – A civil penalty of up to $7,000 may be imposed.
- For failing to post the CAL/OSHA Poster – you can receive a penalty of up to $1,000 per violation.
When are labor law posters updated?
There is no set date for updates on posters, which is why having a monitoring and update service is so valuable for today’s businesses.
