Poster Compliance FAQs
Q1. Do my state laws change frequently enough to warrant the Poster Subscription Program?
Answer: While it is impossible to forecast what changes are going to be made, it is fair to say that the poster updates do occur on a regular basis. Since January of 2004, there have been on average 2-3 significant changes each year per state. Ongoing compliance requires vigilance in keeping on top of the changes, and this can be complicated and time-consuming. The Poster Subscription Program ensures that you are always in compliance by providing you with new posters as laws change without the added hassle or uncertainty.
Q2. Why do I need labor law posters? Are their fines associated with not displaying current posters?
Answer: Federal and state government regulations require all Employers with at least one employee on payroll to post these documents in a conspicuous area at each of their locations. Failure to keep these notices up-to-date may result in substantial fines or frivolous lawsuits by employees. The amount varies by state agency and case, but fines have been imposed up to $10,000 per incident.
Q3. Why should I purchase these posters when I can print the information from government sites for free?
Answer: Printing the information required to post can be a time-consuming hassle. There are a number of different pages you need to assemble from various sites and they will be printed on black and white which makes them easily ruined. Through the Poster Subscription Service you are provided with space saving, full color laminated posters.
Q4. Are posters available in Spanish?
Answer: The federal poster is available in both English and Spanish. The following states have a Spanish Poster: Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, New Mexico, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.
