Fact or
Fiction:
7 Labor
Law Poster
Myths
SLIDESHARE
There are plenty of myths out there
regarding labor law poster compliance.
Check out the top seven to see if you
know what is true and what is false. 
How do you break through
the clutter to determine
what is fact, and what is
fiction?
You must replace
labor law posters
at the beginning
of each year.01
FACT OR FICTION
Labor law poster compliance is
about mandatory changes, not
calendars. Not every posting
change or update takes place on
the first of the year. Also,
government agencies may issue
postings later than the respective
laws’ effective dates.
FICTION
You must provide
job applicants
with labor law
posters.02
FACT OR FICTION
The Equal Employment
Opportunity (EEO) is the Law,
Family and Medical Leave Act
(FMLA) and Employee Polygraph
Protection Act (EPPA) postings must
be displayed for all job applicants,
in addition to employees.
FACT
Labor law posters
must be displayed
in a conspicuous
area.03
FACT OR FICTION
A conspicuous area means
any common area that
most of your employees
interact with daily, such as
a break room or kitchen.
FACT
Fill-in-the-blank
labor law posters
must be filled out at
the corporate level.04
FACT OR FICTION
These postings can be filled out by
the location manager, providing the
information outlined by the location’s
state, county, city and more. This
information may include:
Emergency contacts
Unemployment insurance
Workers' compensation carrier
Area hospitals
FICTION
Labor law posters
have specific font
and size
requirements.05
FACT OR FICTION
Size requirements optimize visibility
for your employees. Most postings
have font requirements, as well, for
easy readability. For example, the
Occupational Safety and Health
Association (OSHA) Job Safety and
Health posting must be 8.5 by 14
inches and feature a minimum       
10-point font to be compliant.
FACT
Labor law
posters must be
available for
remote workers.06
FACT OR FICTION
Although they may not work
in a corporate office space,
companies still need to
provide remote employees
with current labor law
posters.
FACT
Spanish-language
labor law posters
are required for all
states, counties and
cities.07
FACT OR FICTION
Not all labor law posters are
required to be posted in
Spanish. However, some require
you to post if you have 10% or
more Spanish-speaking
employees. Others require it
based on the state in which your
location resides.
FICTION
