Employers too often overlook their obligations to post updated labor law posters in the workplace. Requirements of employers to display compliance posters in places where employees congregate or can easily reference depend on various factors such as size and nature of the business. Failure to follow these requirements may bring about heavy fines and penalties by the government agencies, including the U.S. Department of Labor, if violation and non compliance of labor laws are found during inspections.

Labor law posters are available in many formats. These posters have been designed as a way to help the millions of Americans employed in different organizations become aware of the many rights and regulations that favor employees. Labor Law posters, like safety posters, are often ignored or overlooked by employees. These posters provide protection from employer exploitation and enable employees to understand their rights under the law. Labor Law posters help both the employer and employee by providing up-to-date information about Compliance. The following lists are examples of some of the compliance topics posted:

I. Texas Labor Law Postings

OIEC Posting
Payday Notice
Child Labor Laws
Employer Notification of Ombudsman Program
Workers' Compensation in Texas
Equal Employment Opportunity in Texas
Workers Compensation (Non-Coverage)
Emergency Phone Numbers

II. Federal Labor Law Postings

Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law (EEOC) Posting - Includes New GINA Posting
Federal Minimum Wage
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA Posting)

Reduce unnecessary liability to your company, and avoid costly fines. Prevent work place related law suits by informing your employees of the importance of the Safety and Labor Law Posters.
