['Labor Law Posters']
Workplace posters are required under federal, state, and local laws. These posters provide a summary of employee rights under these laws, including minimum wage, family and medical leave, job safety, and unemployment insurance postings. The specific postings that are required will depend on where the employer is located, how many employees the employer has, and which industry the employer is in.

Every employer with one or more employees has some posting obligations.
What needs to be posted?
Employers need to display the federal, state, and local postings that apply to their workplace. This often includes minimum wage, family and medical leave, job safety, and unemployment insurance postings.
The specific postings that are required will depend on will depend on where the employer is located, how many employees the employer has, and which industry the employer is in.
There is no single, overarching posting regulation or law. Rather, more than 350 federal, state, and local laws nationwide include a section requiring an employer to display a poster. An employer needs to display a posting when a law with a posting requirement applies to the workplace. These laws are enforced by federal agencies, such as the Department of Labor and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as well as state and local agencies.
Failure to properly display required workplace posters can bring a fine or an increased risk of litigation if employees feel worker rights have been violated.
Display up-to-date information
It’s important to pay attention to posters to avoid displaying outdated information. In addition to understanding which postings must be displayed, employers should make sure the most recent mandatory version is posted. Federal, state, and local agencies make many mandatory changes to labor law posters each year, and employers should be ready to display a revised poster when an update occurs.
Updates may be due to regulatory changes such as:
- A minimum wage increase,
- Additional anti-discrimination protections,
- New accommodation provisions,
- Changes to unemployment regulations, and
- Workers’ compensation law updates.
