New York-Specific Labor Law Posters
In addition to the federal labor law posters listed above, New York 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.
- New York Minimum Wage Poster: New York employers must post this labor law poster, titled Attention Miscellaneous Industry Employees, which describes employees’ rights to be paid the minimum wage and overtime pay. Currently, the minimum wage for employers in New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County is $15.00. For the rest of the state, the minimum wage is $12.50 as of December 31, 2020. The poster also describes requirements for tipped workers and explains the types of pay that employees may be entitled to under New York law.
- *New York Fringe Benefits and Hours Poster: New York employers must post their policy on vacation, sick leave, personal leave, holidays, and hours. Instead of posting this information, employers have the option to provide this information in writing to every employee.
- New York Equal Pay Law Poster: This poster clarifies that employers cannot pay employees differently based on their sex.
- New York Time Off to Vote Poster: This poster notifies New York employees that they may take up to 3 hours off from work to vote without loss of pay. The poster must be displayed at least 10 days before any election day.
- New York Blood Donation Leave: This poster notifies employees that they are entitled to time off to donate blood: up to three hours per year at an off-premises location or twice per year at their place of employment.
- *New York Unemployment Insurance Notice to Employees: All New York employers registered with the New York State Unemployment Insurance Division are required to post this notice. The notice explains that the employer is covered, provides the employer’s registration number, and describes how employees may file an application for unemployment insurance.
- *New York Workers’ Compensation and Disability Benefits Posters: These posters are provided by the employer’s insurance carrier. The workers’ compensation notice is white, and the disabilities notice is blue.
- *New York No Smoking Policy Poster: Under the New York State Clean Indoor Air Act, New York employers must post “No Smoking” signs or the international “No Smoking” symbol in every place where the act restricts or prohibits smoking. (This sign does not appear on our New York state poster. You can download it from our Free Specialty Labor Law Posters page.)
- *New York Discrimination Notice: The New York State Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, creed, age, color, national origin, sexual orientation, military status, sex, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, disability, and marital status. As of February 8, 2020, all employers are covered by this law; previously, it was limited to employers with four or more employees). The poster explains this law and specifies that the law also prohibits discrimination based on religious practices, hairstyles associated with race, prior arrest or conviction record, genetic characteristics, familial status, pregnancy-related conditions, and domestic violence victim status. The law also extends to domestic workers, interns, and nonemployees, such as temporary or contract workers. The poster contains several other provisions and includes a Spanish translation.
- New York Criminal Conviction Records Poster: Employers must post a copy of Article 23-A of the correction law relating to the employment of people with a criminal conviction. The law prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants with a conviction unless there is a direct relationship between the criminal offense and the employment sought or unless the employment might post an unreasonable risk to individuals, the public, or property.
- New York Guidelines Regarding the Rights of Nursing Mothers to Express Breast Milk in the Workplace Poster: New York employers must share information about the right of mothers to express breast milk after the birth of their child: they may post it, provide notice to individual employees, or publish the information in an employee handbook.
- New York Employment of Minors Poster: Employers must create and post a work schedule for all minors that sets forth their hours of work.
Note that employers in various industries and public employers may have additional labor law posting requirements. Localities in New York may also have other required posters. Be sure to check out our local pages for additional details.
*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.
