Washington Changes Labor Law Poster on Worker Rights but Previous Version Still OK

You may have heard that a new “Your Rights as a Worker in Washington State” poster has just been issued by the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries (L&I).

Although the “Your Rights as a Worker” poster is a required state labor law poster, the new May 2010 revision is not a required change.

According to the L&I website, the previous version of the poster – December 2008 – is still valid.

The December 2008 version of the Washington “Your Rights” poster is included on our current Washington labor law poster with a publication date of 5/10.  The December 2008 version of the poster marked the first time rights for non-agricultural workers and agricultural workers were combined on the same poster.

If you still need to update your Washington state labor law poster or have other federal or state labor law poster questions, go to the Poster Compliance Center Washington labor law poster page or call 1-800-322-3636.
