Note: The poster will contain the most up-to-date information available for general businesses at the time of order. If the nature of your industry requires special safety or other special notices, you will need to make separate arrangements to acquire them. It should also be noted that labor law posting requirements change from time to time. If there is such a change you would need to purchase a new poster to be in compliance.
Labor Law Poster Facts Video Transcript
Today I'd like to talk to you
about labor law posters.
BUT… you have to know what laws you're required to post, and then go find them all.
Once you do get them and hang them up in the office, you wind up with a wall or bulletin board full of documents that may get ripped or look messy.
To make poster compliance easier – and to make the postings look more attractive, Business Know-How sells a line of products that combines individual labor law notices into a larger, colorful laminated poster.
Over the years, we have provided these posters to tens of thousands of businesses. From talking to our customers, we know that they are often confused about labor law poster compliance. So, I'd like to take a few minutes today to answer some of the questions we hear most often. One of those questions is:
Do I Need New Labor Law Posters Every Year?
No, you don't need to replace posters every year. You only need to replace your labor law posters when there is a major change in the text of federal or state notices you're required to display change.
Here's a related question our customer service reps hear a lot:
Another thing that businesses often ask is if they still need to post the federal posters if their state minimum wage is higher than the federal minimum wage
And the answer is Yes, you do need to post the federal minimum wage poster, too. That's because the Federal Minimum Wage poster also includes regulations on child labor and overtime rules.
Another question we hear frequently is
Do I need to post labor laws in other languages?
If your entire workforce is fluent in English, you are not required to post federal labor laws in other languages, however you should check with your own state department of labor regarding state regulations.
If your workforce is comprised of a "significant portion of workers who are not literate in English," there are two postings required by federal law to be displayed in "a language in which the employees are literate."
These are the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Poster, for companies employing 50 or more people, and the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA.) for companies employing migrant and seasonal workers.
We also get calls now and then from small business telling us they've gotten mailing that says Final Notice then goes on to tell them there are new regulations out and and if they don't comply by buying a poster, they'll be hit with a big fines.
Be aware that those compliance "notices" are usually ads sent out by commercial companies that try to trick businesses into buying their posters – posters they may or may not need. To find out if you really need new posters check the Department of Labor website, or our list of recent updates.
How do you know when I do need to update my posters?
You can find information on current requirements by visiting the US Department of Labor's website and your own state's Department of Labor website. Or, just go to www.BusinessKnowHow.net/posters, and click on the link on the right side of the page says Latest Poster Updates. That will take you to a page that shows the latest state and federal updates by state.
If you would rather be notified by e-mail when there are major changes in the labor law posting requirements in your state, use the signup box on the lower right of the page to sign up for our free labor law poster update notification service. (Scroll back up this page to find the signup box.)
Do I have to buy labor law posters?
No, you don't have to buy them. You can go to various state and federal websites and download the posters you're required to display, print them up on your printer and hang them. The problem with doing that is that hanging multiple printouts may look messy, and you might not find all the laws you’re supposed to post.
The reason most companies do buy posters is that the purchased posters simplify compliance and look more attractive.
Business Know-How, for instance, sells two kinds of state and federal labor law posters. One is a combined, all-in-one format poster that puts the state and federal labor laws on one big labor law poster.
The other is a 2-poster kit that includes a state labor law poster with just the state regulations, and a federal poster with the federal required postings.
Both are laminated for durability, and very reasonably priced. In fact the cost of one of our labor law posters is likely to be a lot less than the cost of the time it would take an employee to locate and print the required federal and state postings for an office.
