LABOR LAW POSTINGS

In California, all employers must meet workplace posting obligations. Workplace postings are usually available at no cost from the requiring agency. The Department of Industrial Relations requires employers to post information related to wages, hours and working conditions in an area frequented by employees where it may be easily read during the workday. Additional posting requirements apply to some workplaces. For a list of available safety and health postings, visit the Cal/OSHA publications page.

Downloaded posters meet an employer’s legal obligation.

If you need more than five copies of any posting, or have questions about required postings, e-mail the California Department of Industrial Relations at Posting@dir.ca.gov or call (415) 703-5070.
You may also fax an order to (415) 703-5074.
