Did You Know?: Dept. of Labor Posters and Requirements

Some of the statutes and regulations enforced by agencies under the U.S. Department of Labor require that posters or notices be displayed in the workplace.

While each business and industry has its own requirements, there are some general posters required of each business, regardless of industry. When the U.S. Department of Labor investigates a business, they typically look for the following three posters:

·         Federal Minimum Wage

·         Employees Polygraph Protection Act

·         Family and Medical Leave Act

Employers can save money instantly by printing off their own posters. Business owners can click the links to the three above, or search the US DOL posters webpage to obtain others that might be required for their particular business.

If you are without these direct links, you can easily find the page by (1) going to http://www.DOL.gov, (2) entering POSTERS in the upper right hand corner search box, (3) and then finding and clicking the link titled “Workplace Posters Available from U.S. Department of Labor.”
