It is around this time of year we begin to see companies trying to sell labor law posters that are available for free. Some businesses are better off purchasing the posters because it saves time, assuming the poster you buy covers everything. You can check which posters you need at these two sites (assuming you are an NC employer):
- NC allows you to download their posters from here.
- The US DOL has a notice adviser/wizard called elaws®.
The posters are updated regularly and the penalties can be quite harsh. I recommend you check at least annually to see your business’ posters are up to date.
You can see my February 2014 post for more details.
