Why Labor Law Posters Are Essential

As a business owner, you may not consider labor law compliance as an integral part of your daily operations. For anyone new to compliance, labor law posters include information related to employee rights, such as minimum wage information and OSHA guidelines, that every business owner is required to post. Even if a business has only one person on the payroll, these notices are required. There are mandatory labor law posters at the state, federal, and for some, even the local level, and these notices can change frequently. Each business is required by law to post these notices in an accessible common area and has to make sure that the most current information is represented on the notices. With everything else that it takes to run a business, no energy should be wasted worrying that you would be found out of compliance.

Ensure Compliance At Every Location

The first thing that you need to do is to make sure that every one of your business locations has the most recent version of all required labor law posters. Knowing for certain that you have the most current notices can be very tricky, even if you only have one location. As mentioned earlier, labor law posters can update frequently and unpredictably, and some of the notices do not even include dates. How, then, do you know if your posters are current? You could visit the state, local, and federal websites regularly and try to see if a notice has been updated, or contact each government office and attempt to get answers about which notices are new or out-of-date. This, as you can tell, takes a lot of time and effort.

Digital Labor Law Compliance

With the growth of remote and hybrid work, digital labor law compliance is a growing concern for many companies. As an employer, you are responsible for ensuring all of your employees have access to review the required labor law notices. Some states are now beginning to put digital labor laws in place. For example, New York State law now requires electronic labor law notices. We anticipate that this trend will continue to grow as legislation begins to catch up with the increasing prevalence of remote work. At Poster Compliance Center, we have a variety of digital products to help you stay ahead of the ever-changing compliance environment.
