Why are employee postings important?
If you have employees, you must post certain posters at your office. Failure to post the required material can result in citations and fines.
We have all seen posters with disclaimers on the wall of an office. The purpose of these posters is to provide notice to employees about certain rights provided by state or federal law.
What posters are required by state and federal law?
The answer depends on your company, the number of employees with your company, and whether you contract with the federal government or foreign countries. To provide guidance, the Department of Labor has created a website for this purpose: Department of Labor. You can answer a series of questions and the site will now generate the list of posters for you with links to download each type.
While you are conducting this assessment it would be best to review your current procedures and employee handbook to ensure everything is up-to-date. If you do not have an employee handbook, we can assist in creating this essential company document.
Employers are responsible for protecting the safety and health of employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces the training and protection of employees. (Here are resources from OSHA: Small Business Safety Guide/Small Business Safety Handbook). Workplace safety policies should be clearly stated in the employee handbook.
