Employee Posting Laws: How Noncompliance Increases Your Company's Exposure in Employment Litigation
Employment lawsuits continue to increase year after year, and judgments are skyrocketing as workplace laws impose tighter restrictions and employees become more aware of their rights. Most employers are aware that federal and state laws require them to post certain notices throughout their businesses informing applicants and employees of their workplace rights.
The postings are issued by multiple agencies. There is not a "one-stop" government resource for posting compliance. The postings change frequently, but the government typically does not notify businesses when changes occur. Posting compliance can serve as an employer’s first line of defense in an employment dispute or enforcement action, while noncompliance can turn a manageable dispute into an expensive legal matter.
Staying on top of posting laws can be time-consuming, but ignoring them is a risk most businesses cannot afford to take. This whitepaper, sponsored by Poster Guard, details the most significant ways that noncompliance with posting requirements can increase an employer’s exposure in litigation and agency enforcement actions.
