Get All the Facts About Federal Labor Law Posters

It is no secret that maintaining labor law compliance can be an overwhelming task. While you may be aware of the importance of remaining compliant with local and state labor posters, keeping up to date on federal labor law posters is just as essential.

What Is on the Federal Labor Law Posters?

Employers across the United States are responsible for posting the most up-to-date federal labor law posters, but following up on current and soon-to-be laws can be an absolute chore. You might be familiar with some federal labor law posters, such as the FMLA poster, but there are actually considerably more required notices. Listed below are the notices that are required on the federal labor law posters. All of these notices combined are often referred to as the 6-on-1 poster, or six federal notices on one labor law poster.

  • Federal Minimum Wage
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
  • Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA)
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

Of course, you are only in compliance until the next changes to the federal law posters take effect. 

New Federal Labor Law Changes in 2023

In 2023, changes to federal labor law posters went into effect. In April, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) updated two of its federal labor law notices: its Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) poster and its Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) poster. Then, in June, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) updated the “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal” workplace poster. You can read the details of these updates here.

Are You Required to Post Other Federal Notices That Are Not on the Federal Labor Law Posters?

At the federal level, we also supply these products:

  • Federal Labor Law Poster Applicant Edition
  • Federal Contractor Poster
  • Davis-Bacon Poster (Government Construction)
  • SCA/Walsh-Healey Poster (Federal Contractors)

While all employers are responsible for posting federal labor law posters, there are many situations where these other notices must be posted as well. 

Which Federal Posters Must Be Displayed for Job Applicants?

It is a little-known fact that certain notices from the federal labor law posters need to be accessible to job applicants. These three required notices have to be displayed wherever an interview takes place, even if you have the federal labor law posters elsewhere on the premises. To simplify this task for you, we created the Applicant Edition of our federal poster. This poster is conveniently smaller (12″x18″) than the traditional federal labor law posters, and only consists of the three mandatory federal notices that you need for compliance in an interview space. You can check out our blog about the Federal Applicant Poster for more information.

Do I Need to Post a Federal Contractor Poster?

The Federal Contractor Poster is required for federal contractors and/or subcontractors. This federal labor law poster contains laws enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor which include the following:

  • Employee Rights Under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
  • Worker Rights Under Executive Order 13658: Federal Minimum Wage for Contractors
  • Employee Rights on Government Contracts (SCA/Walsh-Healey)
  • Employee Rights Under the Davis-Bacon Act (For Laborers and Mechanics Employed on Federal or Federally Assisted Construction Projects)
