Virginia Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the state of Virginia must display the new “Notice to Workers” along with other state-mandated posting requirements where they are sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Virginia Labor Law Poster and requires an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.
