Additional state notice requirements regarding workplace posters, restrictive covenants and pay can be found in the following resources:

States that have no requirements regarding a specific type of new hire paperwork or notice are marked N/A. This does not necessarily mean that the state has no law on that subject in general. Rather, it indicates that the state does not have a specific new hire paperwork requirement relating to that topic. For example, although employers in most states are required to provide workers' compensation coverage, only a few state workers' compensation laws include a new hire paperwork requirement.
