Every business in the U.S. with one or more paid employees is required to have pertinent federal, state, city and county labor law postings displayed in their office in an unblocked, unlocked public area for both applicants and employees to see. A Labor Law Poster combines all mandatory postings onto one convenient, laminated, space-saving sheet. Businesses with multiple locations must display these postings in each location.
OneDigital has partnered with PosterElite to provide clients with an up-to-date, All-in-One State & Federal Labor Law Poster that includes a comprehensive, pay-as-you-go e-update for physical worksites to ensure year-round posting compliance.
As of December 2020, employers nationwide are legally obligated to provide electronic labor law posters to their entire workforce, and this includes those working in a remote or hybrid capacity. The DOL and OSHA recommend a formal acknowledgment from the employee and urge the employer to make it as easy as possible for the employee.
As part of PosterElite's E-Update Service, employers receive free access to the ePosterService for Remote/NYS Employees. This solution provides online access to the labor law postings for remote or NYS employees, along with a certificate of acknowledgment tracking feature and all city, county, state & federal updates.
The physical, laminated labor law poster includes State & Federal labor law postings but not local city or county notices. Not all cities or counties have local required notices, but if they do, they are available as free downloads in the supplemental posting library provided by PosterElite.
While having a physical labor law poster is great, buying a new one each time a labor law posting changes is not. The average state is experiencing 2-3 changes annually, and some states anticipate as many as 6-8 changes in the coming years. This does not count local city & county notices. On average, there are 100-150 labor law posting updates every year. Employers are required by law to be vigilant and aware of these changes. This is a time-consuming and complicated task that most businesses do not have the time, patience, resources, or know-how to accomplish.
The E-update Service ensures that you are always in compliance by constantly monitoring all county, city, state, and federal-mandated labor law postings and automatically providing you with newly updated postings whenever laws change. The pay-as-you-go E-Update Service takes the worry, uncertainty, and hassle out of Labor Law Posting Compliance.
Failure to post required federal employment law notices can exceed $34,000 in fines. State fines and penalties will vary by agency and are also determined case-by-case.
