Ohio Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the State of Ohio must display the new Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law notice along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Ohio & 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.
