District of Columbia Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the District of Columbia must post the Equal Employment Opportunity notice along with other district-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our District of Columbia & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.
