With workplaces rapidly changing and remote workers becoming much more common, electronic labor posters are becoming essential for compliance. Electronic labor posters keep companies in compliance with labor laws and also give their employees something that provides them with the rights that they need. Local, State, and Federal laws are constantly changing so it is important to keep your labor posters updated.
Remote Worker Labor Posters Required
Companies that have all employees currently working remotely must provide electronic access to updated electronic labor posters to stay in compliance. If your company has some employees working remotely and some workers in person it is still strongly recommended by the Department of Labor to provide the remote workers with electronic labor posters. If your employees are working at a customer's location, your company still stays in compliance with current labor laws. If your employees cannot access these posters at a customer's location, get in touch with the customer and see if they can make the poster visible to your employees or if you can set up a compliance poster visible to them.
Which Electronic Labor Posters are Required and When
All Federal and State labor posters are required to stay in compliance with labor law. In some cases, depending on the city, city compliance posters are also required under labor law. Check with your Department of Labor to see which of these are required for your business. For the timeframe of when these compliance posters are needed, there is no specific time frame or grace period as of now for remote employees. If your business is fully remote, it is best to supply your employees with electronic labor posters and document them when you have done so.
