Required Posting Notices

The U.S. Dept. of Labor and State Agencies require employers to meet workplace posting obligations by posting information related to various aspects of the workplace, pertaining to wages and hours worked, for example, in an area frequented by employees and where they may be read during the workday. 

We've provided a few links to those sites. You can print these notices for your convenience.

Each February through April, employers must post a summary of the injuries and illnesses recorded by previous year. Also, if requested, copies of the records must be provided to current and former employees, or their representatives. See recordkeeping forms 300, 300A, 301, and additional instructions.
