Business Compliance

Each state has its own list of required posters that must be visible to its employees. These posters are to be printed and hung in the workplace. It’s getting easier to add items to our employees online portal for electronic access, but most states still require these to be printed, no matter what.

Laborposters.org is a great tool to check your states requirements. You can download south carolina’s required workplace posters from us for free which includes the most recent updated workplace discrimination poster  highlighting updates to the pregnancy accommodation laws.

Where employers should post them, how big are they required to be, and so much more information is critical to ensuring your businesses compliance in your state. We’re diving into the requirements in South Carolina; an “at-will” employment state.

Are Workplace Posters Required?

Failure to post the most current required notices can lead to penalties and fines of up to $35,0000 per business location. Additionally, failure to post updated compliance posters can be used as evidence of non-compliance during an employment lawsuit and can extend the statute of imitations on charges of discrimination and retaliation against your business. 

Some government agencies or contractors may be required to post additional workplace posters, so be sure to check with the department of labor for your exact requirements.
