Help with Labor Law Posters

One of the many responsibilities that come with having employees is the posting of mandatory workplace posters. These posters ensure that employees know their rights regarding compensation and fair treatment, among other things. But not every business needs every poster, so how does one know what must be prominently displayed in that breakroom or common area? The U.S. Department of Labor website elaws (Employment Laws Assistance for Workers and Small Businesses) can help.

Just like their name would indicate, elaws is an employment law assistance website for small businesses and their employees. The website is packed with information regarding pay and benefits, health and safety, as well as employment posters. The elaws “Firststep Poster Advisor” asks you a series of questions about your business to determine what posters you need to display.

Once you determine what posters you need, you can download PDF copies and print them off to display them from the U.S. Department of Labor website. For state labor posters, visit the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment poster page where you also download and print PDF copies of the necessary posters. If you have any questions about this reach out to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment at 303-318-8000. Good luck, and happy posting!
