Federal and state employment laws require that employers
post various notices in the workplace explaining the rights of employees.
Required notices must be posted prominently and conspicuously where
they can be readily seen by both employees and applicants for employment.
Many employers display the required posters in an employee lunchroom
or break room, as well as in the human resources area or by the main
entrance to the workplace. Individual posters meeting the requirements
of each federal and state law are available from the various regulatory
agencies responsible for their enforcement. The federal government
provides versions of the posters in Spanish as well as English.
Employers that fail to post the required notices may
be subject to significant penalties and fines. In addition, being
able to show that the required posters were displayed in the workplace
is important for defending any claims of discrimination, violations
of wage and hour laws, and other similar claims.
In addition to the federal posting requirements, employers
should also review state requirements.
