By June 30, 2022 No Comments

Background

Employment Poster requirements are continuously changing throughout the year. In addition to minimum wage changes, there are often state, local, and industry-specific policy changes that require poster updates. If you have one or more employees, your business is required by law to post a current State and Federal Employment Poster in a central location.

HR Knowledge monitors and tracks employment and labor law postings to keep our clients up to date and in compliance with all posting requirements.
