Employment lawsuits continue to increase year after year, and judgments are skyrocketing as workplace laws impose tighter restrictions and employees become more aware of their rights. Most employers are aware that federal and state laws require them to post certain notices throughout their businesses informing applicants and employees of their workplace rights. The postings are issued by multiple agencies. There is not a "one-stop" government resource for posting compliance. The postings change frequently, but the government typically does not notify businesses when changes occur. Posting compliance can serve as an employer’s first line of defense in an employment dispute or enforcement action, while noncompliance can turn a manageable dispute into an expensive legal matter.
