Are Any Companies Exempt from Labor Law Posters?

The only businesses that are exempt from labor law posters are ones that do not have employees. The purpose of labor law posters are to clearly inform your employees their legal rights, benefits, and procedures on how to report violations. They also help to establish a fair, safe, and legal workplace environment for your employees.  

The Exemptions

If you have a sole-proprietorship or LLC for your personal consulting business and don’t employ anyone, you are exempt from needing labor law posters. But companies that have even just one employee are required to post all State and Federal labor law posters in a conspicuous place like a break room or cafeteria.

Volunteer and Contract Employees

If you solely work with volunteers or contract employees you do not need to have labor law posters, as they are exempt from the requirements. Keep in mind that if you have a mix of employees and volunteers, you are required to have up to date posters.

Remote Employees

If you have remote employees, you’re still required to communicate the mandatory Federal, State, and OSHA postings to them. Don’t worry–you can email electronic versions of the posters to remote employees to stay compliant. And if these employees stop in the office on a frequent basis, having posters up will be enough.
