Workplace Posters

Editor's Note: Display workplace posters to advise employees of their rights.

Marta MoakleyOverview: Workplace posters and notices offer regular reminders to employees and supervisors of an employer's policies, procedures and work rules. Further, an employer may be required by state or federal law to display posters regarding discrimination, harassment, safety and health, wages and compensation. Posters should be displayed in a conspicuous manner in a frequently visited area of the workplace such as a lunch room or break room. Employers may also be required to post workplace notices in another language (e.g., Spanish) so that all employees may have access to important information regarding their workplace rights.

Trends: Employers need to be aware of additional posting requirements that only apply to certain industries. In addition, some municipalities require specific postings and notices. Employment posters, notices and pamphlets (whether legally required or encouraged) may be found in XpertHR's Employment Law Manual and Policies and Documents resources.
