Q: Am I required to post the NLRA labor poster?

No, you are not required to post an NLRA poster unless you are a federal contractor or sub-contractor.

Q:  Where do I  post the  labor posters?

A: This is a fun question! I bet, as a consumer, you can recall seeing these posters posted in some strange places. I’ve seen them posted behind file cabinets, behind closed doors and posted so high I needed binoculars!

The short answer is that you should hang your labor posters in a conspicuous location accessible to all employees such as a break room, a common hallway or near a time clock. If you have employees on multiple floors of a building or in other locations than your main office, you may need to post labor law posters in multiple locations.
