Required Employment Posters

This page provides an overview of the major employment posters required by federal and Washington State law to be posted in the workplace, including information on how to obtain copies.

Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) Required Poster

All public agencies are subject to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which temporarily provides additional leave options and rights to employees from April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Employers must post a Department of Labor (DOL) poster (see the non-federal version) about FFCRA in a conspicuous place on the premises by April 1.

DOL has advised that, since many employees are telecommuting, employers may satisfy this requirement by mailing or emailing the notice to employees, or by posting it on the agency's internal or external website for employees to see. For more information, see DOL's FFCRA Notice Frequently Asked Questions.


Overview

The administrative regulations for Washington State and federal employment related laws require the posting of notices to inform employees of their rights under those laws. Employers must display these required posters where their employees can read them. The list on this page contains the major posters required by law, but it is not intended to be a complete list.

For the most up-to-date and complete information on state required posters, including copies of posters in languages other than English, see the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I) Ordering Required Workplace Posters page and the Washington State Employment Security Department (ESD) Employer Resources Forms and Publications page. L&I also offers a page that provides Answers to Questions about Required Work Posters.
