State & Federal Labor Law Posters Available Soon

Very soon you'll be able to buy labor law posters from the same source you trust for top-quality safety and office signs: Our colorful, easy-to-read labor law posters will display all mandatory federal and state labor / employment notices for private industry or non-government entities.

All our posters have been reviewed by a licensed attorney. We've done the research so you can buy with confidence. We'll send our customers a notice after the holidays when they're available, but you can contact us if you'd like to be notified immediately.

Some statutes and regulations enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) require that notices be provided to employees and/or posted in the workplace. Posting requirements vary by statute; that is, not all employers are covered by each of the Department's statutes and thus may not be required to post a specific notice. For example, some small businesses may not be covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act and would not be subject to the Act's posting requirements.

Generally, federal workplace posters must be displayed or posted in conspicuous places where they are easily visible to all employees — the intended audience. The FMLA, EEO, and EPPA posters are also required to be placed where they can be seen by applicants for employment. Failure to post required federal notices may result civil money penalties, contract actions or legal sanctions, depending on the notice. State posting rules and penalties vary.
