Delaware-Specific Labor Law Posters
In addition to the federal labor law posters listed above, Delaware employers are also required to post the following mandatory state labor law posters. They must be displayed in a conspicuous and accessible place. Businesses that fail to post these notifications may be subject to penalties or fines.
- *Delaware Minimum Wage Poster: Employers must post this notice that includes the most up-to-date minimum wage rate. The current minimum wage in Delaware is $9.25 per hour; the rate for minors (aged 14 to 17) and the training rate for adults for their first 90 days on the job is $8.75 per hour. The poster also explains that employers must keep pay records for each employee for three years.
- *Delaware Payment of Wages Poster: This notice is required for employers with four or more employees. It must be provided to employees in writing when they are hired, and it must include their rate of pay; the day, hour, and place of payment; and a summary of the employer’s benefits policies.
- Delaware Child Labor Poster: This poster, required only for companies that employ minors, summarizes the state’s child labor laws.
- Delaware Discrimination Poster: This notice is required for employers with four or more employees. It summarizes the acts that qualify as illegal employment discrimination under the law and explains the procedure for filing a complaint. Under Delaware law, employers may not discriminate against employees because of their race, color, national origin, sex (including pregnancy), religion, disability, age, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or membership in a volunteer emergency responder organization (volunteer firefighters, ambulance personnel, or ladies’ auxiliary). The law also forbids discrimination against victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking as well as against those with family care responsibilities. Discrimination based on reproductive health decisions is also prohibited.
- *Delaware Workers’ Compensation Poster: Delaware employers must post this notice for their employees and carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage. The poster explains the obligations of both employers and employees in the event of a workplace injury, including recordkeeping requirements.
- *Delaware Employee Breaks Poster: Employers must post a notice describing the breaks required during working hours.
- Delaware Whistleblower Notice Poster: This notice advises that employers cannot retaliate against employees who report workplace violations, so long as they are not false.
Employers in various industries may have additional labor law posting requirements. They may also have an obligation to post in multiple languages, depending on the composition of their workforce.
*Included on Spanish poster
NOTE: Spanish posters may not include all notices published on the English poster and may vary from our standard 18″w x 24″h size since some states do not issue all notices in Spanish.
Employment posters must be posted in a conspicuous location.
