EEOC Labor Law Poster Updates

Covered employers are required by federal law to display the new “Know Your Rights” poster along with other federally-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our 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.

Order the Federal Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
