Required Employment Posters

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

Updates:

  • Effective December 2020, the Department of Labor & Industries has updated the Your Rights as a Worker poster, including minor content changes, improved formatting, and separate English and Spanish versions (as well as other languages).
  • Effective April 1, 2020, all public agencies must post a U.S. Department of Labor poster (see non-federal version) regarding the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) in a conspicuous place. 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.
