In general, ministries with paid employees are required to post labor law posters. Federal and state departments of labor, and licensed attorneys, can help clarify which posters must be displayed.
Labor law posters are designed to notify employees and applicants about their employment rights. The posters that are required to be displayed vary depending on applicable laws. Failure to post the appropriate posters can result in citations, fines, penalties, and other measures.
The posters that are required by state law generally are available via the state’s department of labor (DOL) website. Find your state’s DOL site here.
To find out which posters should be displayed at your ministry from a federal standpoint, consider using the FirstStep Employment Law Advisor online tool. This tool will produce a list of required posters based on answers to a series of questions. Most posters are printable from the Web site for no charge.
The posters that are required by state law generally are available via the state’s department of labor (DOL) website. Find your state’s DOL site here. Also, it’s a good idea to check for posters required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Links to these posters can be found from OSHA’s website.
While these online tools are helpful starting points, they may not provide a complete list of posters your ministry is required to display. Consult with a licensed attorney in your area for more specific information.
