Do we need to have our posters in Spanish?
If more than 5% of your employees use English as a second language (ESL), then Spanish versions of the labor law posters are required in the following states: Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, North Carolina, New York and Texas.
Employers required to display the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Poster must consider the employees who will read the poster and provide it in their primary language, including Spanish.
It is highly recommended that employers with Spanish speaking employees post labor law posters in both English and Spanish because it is the employers' responsibility to ensure that each employee is informed of their workplace rights under state and federal employment laws.
We have multiple buildings at our workplace, do we have to post the employment law notices in each building?
The posting requirements for state and federal employment notices are that posters must be accessible by all employees on a regular or daily basis. If all your employees do not report to a central location on a regular basis, then you are required to post the notices at each building to meet your obligations. However, if all employees are required to meet at a central location or headquarters regularly, and have the opportunity to view the postings, then you meet state and federal requirements.
Our company has one building with multiple floors. Are we required to display the employment law notices on each floor in the break room or can we just display them in the cafeteria?
It depends. If you can demonstrate that all employees regularly visit one floor or location, such as the cafeteria, then posting the employment law notices there is compliant. If all employees do not regularly visit the one location, then you are required to display the notices in each break room or other central locations on each floor.
