Workplace labor law compliance poster notices 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 Law Poster in a central location visible to all employees. We monitor and track these labor law updates by providing a roundup of these compliance changes each month.
