Posting Requirements

If you are subject to the FLSA, you will also have to display a poster created by the federal government in your workplace, publicizing the federal minimum-wage and overtime-pay standards.

Where should you put the poster? You should make sure that employees see the poster as they come and go from work. Any person who willfully violates any of the provisions of the FLSA, including failure to post, is subject to a fine of not more than $10,000 or to imprisonment for not more than six months, or both.


Work Smart

If your worksite is fairly large, you might also consider hanging these posters in the break room or on bulletin boards where employment-related information is posted.

Where can you get the poster? The poster can be obtained from your local Wage and Hour Division office. To locate the Wage and Hour Division closest to you, check your phone directory (in the federal government listings). Under Employment Standards Administration, you should see a listing for the Wage and Hour Office nearest you.

State laws. Individual states may also have posting requirements that you'll have to comply with. Click on your state on the map below to find out what your state's posting requirements are. The states that are blue are those that do not have posting requirements.
