In California, all employers must meet workplace posting obligations. Workplace postings are usually available at no cost from the requiring agency. The Department of Industrial Relations requires employers to post information related to wages, hours and working conditions in an area frequented by employees where it may be easily read during the workday. You are required to post labor law posters in both English and Spanish if you have Spanish speaking employees.
Although it is recommended, the following types of businesses do not need to post labor law posters:
  • Sole Proprietor without employees
  • Businesses with only contract employees
  • Businesses with an all-volunteer work force
  • Family owned business where all employees are related
If a business is not in compliance with current federal and state labor law poster standards, they are in jeopardy of receiving a fine or citation. Additionally, keeping your employees in compliance with required reminds supervisors of their obligations to uphold the law, and protect your workers from injury, discrimination, harassment, and other important State, Federal, and OSHA requirements
Federal and State fines are imposed by various agencies. These fines may vary.
  • Federal FMLA $100 per offense.
  • Federal Employee Polygraph Protection Act Secretary of labor can bring court actions and assess civil penalties for failing to post.
  • The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) may bring court actions and asses civil penalties as well.
