In addition to the federal labor law posters listed above, North Carolina 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.
- *North Carolina Wage and Hour Act Notice to Employees (revised November 2022): This poster sets forth state requirements regarding the minimum wage, overtime, youth employment, wage payment, employee classification, and employment at will. Currently, the minimum wage in North Carolina follows the federal minimum wage of $7.25.
- *North Carolina OSH Notice to Employees (revised November 2022): This poster sets forth the powers and responsibilities of the state Occupational Safety and Health Division concerning inspections, citations, and employer penalties. It also addresses employer recordkeeping requirements and accident and fatality reporting. Finally, it sets forth employee responsibilities, including complying with occupational safety and health standards, and complaint procedures.
- *North Carolina Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Notice to Employees: This poster explains employers cannot retaliate against an employee relating to protected activities set forth by the North Carolina Retaliatory Employment Discrimination Act. Contact information is provided for employees to report violations and violations must be reported within 180 days after the event occurred.
- *North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Notice to Injured Workers and Employers (revised December 2020): This poster explains that all employees may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for a work-related injury or illness. It mandates that employees report all occupational diseases or injuries to their employer immediately and provides contact information for the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. The standard for reporting an injury to the insurance carrier and Industrial Commission has changed: If an employee misses one day of work or if cumulative medical costs exceed $4,000 (Previously $2,000). The notice is available in English and Spanish.
- *North Carolina Certificate of Coverage and Notice to Workers as to Benefit Rights: This notice describes an employee may qualify for unemployment insurance benefits if: the employee works less than the equivalent of (3) customary scheduled full-time days during any payroll week because work was not available. If the employee’s work hours are substantially reduced or the employee’s job is eliminated due to lack of work. An employer may file claims for employees through the use of automation in case of partial unemployment. An employer may file an attached claim for an employee: only once during a benefit year, and the period of partial unemployment for which the claim is filed may not exceed six consecutive weeks. Employees must notify the employer of any wages earned from all sources during the payroll week. Employees are responsible for ensuring that the employer has the correct mailing address. Employees who become unemployed for other reasons, or who refuse suitable work, can be denied unemployment insurance benefits. Employees whose unemployment is caused by a labor dispute are considered disqualified for unemployment insurance benefits until the dispute is resolved and the operation’s resume in the employee’s place of employment. Contact information is provided for the Department of Commerce, Division of Workforce Solutions, and the Division of Employment Security Instructions for employers are included at the bottom of the notice. The notice is available in English and Spanish.
North Carolina 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.
