Did You Receive a Labor Law Compliance Notice?
You probably got an official looking notice in the mail from some company to pay a labor law compliance fee for the required posters that you must display in your workplace – and that’s why you’re here. Often, the amount “owed” on the notice is roughly $100. You may be wondering if this is some sort of scam, or if you will get in trouble if you ignore it due to the information about Federal Law on the sheet. I am here to tell you that you do not need to pay this notice.
Let me tell you why; this paper is not wrong- you MUST display these posters in the workplace/office space, etc. HOWEVER, these posters can be obtained for FREE on the U.S. government’s website. They may not be as pretty as the ones this company will sell you, but there is no need to pay $100 for them when you can get them at no cost. So how do you get them for free? Simply visit https://www.dol.gov/general/topics/posters.
If you really want a nicer laminated version, there are also businesses who will sell you pretty posters to display for way less than the $100 that this company is requesting. If you want our advice, do not pay the notice you received. Save yourself some money to invest in another sector of your business and obtain them for free. You can throw away the letter.
The answer you came here for:
NO, you do not need to pay the labor law compliance notice you received in the mail.
YES, you do need to obtain and display these posters from somewhere.
