Q:  Is there a whistleblower poster required by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act?

A: There is a federal whistleblower labor law poster for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), but only non-federal employers receiving ARRA recovery funds are required to post it.

According to the federal Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board, the whistleblower poster called “Know Your Rights Under the Recovery Act” must be posted at all Recovery Act job sites.

In addition, the Recovery Board strongly recommends that all Recovery Act job sites also post the “Recovery Act Fraud Hotline” poster along with the whistleblower poster.

These posters are not included on our Poster Compliance Center all-in-one federal labor law poster since they only apply to employers receiving ARRA recovery funds.

Further information about the ARRA program can be found at  www.recovery.gov (click on the Report Fraud, Waste and Abuse tab at the top of the page).
