Specialty Notices – Free Labor Law Posters for 2019


Did you know that your labor law posting requirements could go beyond posting an all-in-one state and federal labor law poster? Depending on location, industry, and/or number of employees—employers  may also be required to display specialty labor law posters.  Our Free Labor Law Posters page provides specialty notices that may be required by your state or industry, and they’re always up-to-date for 2019.  

Some examples are the Federal Contractor Poster, for federal contractors/sub-contractors—or the HIPAA Privacy Notice, for those in the healthcare industry. An increasing number of municipalities are requiring employers to display city/county labor law posters. Businesses in states such as California and New York are required to display supplemental wage orders and industry-specific minimum wage posters.

Some states and localities may have their own business posting requirements regarding subjects such as smoking, drugs, weapons, human trafficking, and more.  Other states have posters that are recommended, but not required. Keeping up with the nuances of labor law posting requirements just became a bit more complicated, haven’t they?

Poster Compliance Center recognizes the frustration that can come with posting requirements. To ease some of the burden, we now offer free specialty labor law posters, available for you to download, print, and post at your convenience.

We currently offer the following specialty labor law posters free of charge:
