With hundreds of constantly changing federal, state and local labor laws, keeping up with posting requirements is a near-impossible task. Do you know how often state and federal labor laws are amended?
As policies on everything from workplace safety to family leave to wage and unemployment policies undergo shifts and amendments, it's the responsibility of businesses to keep up and to make sure their employees know how these laws affect them.
The Challenge: Posting Up-to-Date State, Federal and Local Labor Laws
Businesses that fail to keep their labor law posters current and visible are vulnerable to employee lawsuits and thousands of dollars in fines.
For some regulations, posters are regulated by size, color, fonts, layouts, and other design specifications.
When employees are spread out across multiple offices or even across multiple states, the responsibility gets even more complicated.
Staying up to date requires obtaining updated posters from the U.S. Department of Labor along with individual state labor departments, as well as keeping tabs on when law changes render your current posters out-of-date. A wide variety of laws and regulations require posters, but not all businesses are subject to the same laws.
And government agencies do not provide alerts when new laws go into effect.
On top of state and federal regulations, many county and city regulations must be posted as well. For businesses subject to labor laws in multiple jurisdictions, compliance can be a nightmare.
