Posters for the Workplace
Workplace compliance posters required to be displayed can vary from one employer to another. Posters can be printed free of charge directly from links on this page or by following links to the U.S. Department of Labor.
All Texas employers must display posters containing information on the Workers’ Compensation Program, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Employers subject to the Texas Payday Law must display a poster containing employee information on it. Employers liable under the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act must display a poster that includes information about both unemployment compensation and the Texas Payday Law. Also, every employer with 15 or more employees, and smaller employers with federal grants and contracts, must post the notice entitled “Equal Employment Opportunity Is the Law,” which contains information about the Equal Employment Opportunity/Americans with Disabilities Act laws.
Employers do not need to purchase required posters from private vendors. Government-issued compliance posters do not have to be laminated to satisfy an employer’s regulatory obligation.
Employers needing additional information about which posters they need to display can call TWC ‘s Labor Law unit at 800-832-9243 or 512-475-2670.
