The Compliance Guide for New Business Owners Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of this comprehensive labor law compliance guide. If you’re just tuning in, this is a crash course in labor law posters. After all, it’s important to make sure you’re in compliance. In part 1 of this guide, we covered state, federal, city, workplace and safety, federal contractor, and Spanish labor posters. Now, here is everything else you need to know as a new business owner:

Workplace Signs

Again, workplace signs are great resource for employees. They are another way for employers to communicate with their employees about where items in the workplace are and what areas to stay away from.

Federal Applicant Poster

If you are interviewing possible future employees in a room that does not have the federal labor poster in it, you will need to post a Federal Applicant poster. The Federal Applicant poster has the 3 federal notices that are required to be displayed for job applicants so that they can know their rights during an interview. You can learn more about this on our blog.

Lamination Requirements for Labor Posters

If you are in the food service industry or any industry where sanitation is a concern, you may be required to laminate your labor posters. Laminated labor posters are durable, tear-proof and virtually indestructible. Most importantly, the heavy lamination allows them to be washed, which meets certain FDA requirements. Poster Compliance Center labor posters are already laminated. The only exception is if you are ordering from our go green environmentally friendly line of posters.

Labor Law Poster Service

If you’re new to this and you don’t want to do a ton of research on labor laws, you can obtain everything you need by ordering a complete set of state and federal labor law posters from a reliable compliance company. If you want to go a step further and prevent any potential future worry about updating these posters, a labor law poster service – like Poster Compliance Center’s OneSystem 1-Year Compliance Plan – is the best way to go.

Why go on a labor law poster service?

There are about 2-3 mandatory changes each year for state and federal labor posters. This means that once you have your complete set of labor posters, you will most likely have to update them throughout the year. This not only takes time, but will also cost you money each time you order new posters. Don’t forget the time it will take to research the changes. On a poster service, the updates are sent to you automatically and usually for free if you find the right labor poster service. Below are the following poster services that are available from Poster Compliance Center:

  • 1-Year Compliance Plan: for both state and federal posters. This plan is backed by a $41,000 Poster Violation Warranty and is our most popular product.
  • City Poster 1-Year Plan: for city posters
