Some of the statutes and regulations enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) require that Federal labor law posters must be provided to employees and/or posted in the workplace. Workplaceposters.org provides free downloadable copies of the required posters and some of the posters are available in languages other than English.

Free Labor Law Posters vs. Professional Ones

CONS
Well, they’re free – which is a pretty big deal. If you have a small budget then being able to download and print labor law posters at no cost, is significant. For ultimate convenience, we’ve made each workplace poster available as one PDF file that can be downloaded for free right from our site – so you can avoid the hassle of dealing with government websites altogether. We must be honest, there can be some drawbacks to relying on free printable labor law posters. Unfortunately, government websites are not always reliable. Broken links and outdated information is not uncommon. What’s more, if you decide to print labor law posters from these free government sources, you’ll also need to be diligent in regularly checking for updates and new requirements as labor laws change are inevitable.
