Workplace Posters

Some of the laws administered by DOL require that employers post certain notices in their workplaces in order to ensure their employees have access to information about their rights. DOL provides all required posters free of charge.

Posting requirements vary by law. Not all employers are covered by each of DOL's laws, thus not all employers may have to post a specific notice. Requirements depend on factors such as nature and location of business, number of employees, annual dollar volume and whether the organization has federal contracts or subcontracts.

It is important to note that some states have workplace poster requirements that employers have to follow in addition to the federal requirements. DOL does not provide guidance on state poster requirements but links to the states are available on the state poster page at
