Six federally mandated labor law posters employers are required to display, four must be visible to job applicants. These include:
• Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) — Explains employee leave eligibility and benefits, as well as employer responsibilities
• Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) — Covers anti-discrimination provisions and legally protected characteristics
• Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) — Describes the rules around lie detector tests in employment (even if you don’t use them)
• Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) — Addresses re-employment after military leave, anti-discrimination provisions and health insurance issues. (While not specifically mandated, this poster is recommended because the law applies to applicants).
For online job applicants, the Department of Labor (DOL) recommends that you include a notice near the application form that states: “Applicants have rights under Federal Employment Laws,” and include links to the required posters.
Do not forget any local or state posters that also need to be available to onsite and online applicants during the interview process.
