  • Employers must post the current federal poster and their state employment posters.
  • Employers must update their posters as mandatory changes occur – an average of 2 to 3 times a year.

Too much to do already?

I haven't time to worry about labor posters. I trust that task to Poster Compliance Center.

FAQ

  • Why do I have to display compliance posters?

    Federal and state labor laws require employers with at least one employee to inform employees of their rights by posting federal and state labor law compliance posters.

  • Where should I post compliance posters?

    They must be posted in a conspicuous location accessible to all employees such as in a break room or near a time clock.

  • Do I need to post the labor posters in more than one location?

    Yes, if your employees work on more than one floor of a building or in multiple locations and do not have access to posters in a central location.

  • What posters do I need?

    Federal: The US Department of Labor (DOL) requires employers to post 6 posters (such as the federal minimum wage poster) which are all included on our federal poster.

    State: Poster requirements vary. Select your state above to learn more.

    Other: If you interview job applicants in an area other than where you post labor law compliance posters, you are required to display 3 of the federal labor laws in the interview area. Our Federal Labor Law Poster - Applicant Edition meets this requirement.

  • I always update my employment posters every January. Is that all I need to do?

    No. It is a common misconception that employment posters must only be updated once a year in January. Actually, your posters must be updated whenever there is a mandatory change which can happen at any time of the year. Sign up to receive labor law updates via free email notification whenever required labor law changes occur.

  • Do you publish Spanish compliance posters too?

    Yes! Visit our Spanish compliance posters page for more information.
