U.S. Department of Labor raises labor law posting penalties

Find Out More

Labor law posters are the mandated state and federal employment law notices that employers with at least one employee or more are required to conspicuously post in an area frequented by all employees. Failure to display the correct state and federal employment law notices can result in penalties, fines and lawsuits. The U.S. Department of Labor raised labor law posting penalties and the maximum penalty for federal posting violations is now over $36,000.

State and federal labor law posters must be replaced whenever the language of the employment law changes. These are classified as mandatory changes or updates and employers are required to post the correct version of the notice at their workplace. Failure to post the required version can lead to penalties and fines, just as if you had not posted anything at all. It’s important to always check your posters on a regular basis to ensure you have the current version posted.

While you can download free posters from the the U.S DOL, doing so can be a lengthy process, and keeping track of updates, and downloading and printing updated posters will fall onto someone at your organization. You can outsource this task and remain in compliance without ever lifting a finger by working with a company whose sole purpose is to help you remain in compliance, whether you have one physical location, multiple locations, or a dispersed remote workforce. Since there is no way to predict when updates or changes will take place, dedicated teams keep up with the always changing federal and state regulations so that you don’t have to. This is your reminder to take a look at your current Labor Law posters to ensure your postings are up to date!
