Workplace Word: September 2009 - Don't Get Caught Without Your Workplace Posters!
Federal and state laws require all employers to comply with workplace posting requirements by prominently displaying certain labor and employment law posters. These postings are designed to inform employees and employers of their rights and responsibilities established by both federal and state law. The subject matter of these postings includes, but is not limited to, equal employment opportunity laws, fair labor standards act, family and medical leave acts, and minimum wage laws. These postings are not only required by law but failure to comply with workplace posting requirements may result in citations and monetary penalties.
