Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Question: I have no employees but one of my contractors has employees working at my workplace. Who is responsible for posting the required federal posters?


In general, your contractor should post the posters at your workplace for the contractor's employees. However, in some cases, you may be considered a joint employer of these employees, so you should make sure the required posters are posted if the contractor does not do so. Employment laws can have different definitions of employees and employers, so contact the federal agency administering the particular law if you need clarification.
