Employers are required to post certain labor posters in a conspicuous place where their employees can view them. There are a number of different posters and determining which apply to your business can be confusing. The agencies who administer the laws that are the subject of the posters generally have their requirements and posters on their webpages. The U.S. Department of Labor has an elaws Poster Advisor webpage that guides you through the process of determining which posters required by that department apply to your business. But be careful, this is not the only department that requires posters.
These links can provide you with more information about your compliance requirements and copies of any required posters.
