Are Your Labor Posters Up to Date?

people in office with EEOC notice

2023 and 2024 have seen several updates to federal law that impact your workplace labor posters. Are yours up to date? The new year allows you to check it out and avoid fines!

Updates that affect your posters include (but are not limited to):

  • PUMP Act for Nursing Mothers
  • EEOC Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA)

In addition, several state laws went into effect during 2023 and at the beginning of 2024, many of which may require an updated poster. Check out our update and your state’s Department of Labor websites for updates and poster downloads.

Where and how to post:

To ensure compliance, place these posters in your workplace where applicants and employees can easily read them. The EEOC also recommends posting these notices online, such as on the company website or intranet, in a place easily accessed by employees. 

Online posting usually complements the physical poster. But in cases where there’s no physical workplace, or the employee works remotely, the EEOC recognizes that digital posting may be the sole option.

Additionally, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) mandates that notifications of federal laws prohibiting job discrimination must be accessible to people with mobility-limiting disabilities. Here are some ways employers can ensure their people with disabilities have equitable access to the posters:

  • For people with mobility issues or disabilities, put the notices in an easily viewable location.
  • Make printed notices available to people who need help viewing the poster.
  • For individuals with visual or reading impairments, employers can make the notices available in other formats, such as audio files or electronic.

For more information about workplace posters, including free downloads, answers to your frequent questions, and size requirements, visit the Department of Labor website.
