Everything is bigger in Texas, so they say. Now it’s true that you can print you labor posters and employee notices basically as large as you like and post them in a conspicuous place in your workplace but according to federal and Texas law the mandatory postings are allowed to be much smaller, just about regular size. Now that we got size out of the way, let’s dive into the Texas requirements for posting employee notices in your workplace. You may not be the biggest employer in Texas (or you might) but you sure are the most compliant, aren’t you?

Workplace compliance posters required to be displayed can vary across different types of employers. All Texas employers must display posters containing information on the Workers’ Compensation Program, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. But these are just the standard federal hodgepodge so you knew that. 

As far as Texas specific posters there can be quite a few and knowing which are required for your particular business can be the difference between being compliant and not. Keep up to date with your requirements by keeping up to date with this blog but for now here’s a taste of the various posters required in Texas:

  • Texas Payday Law Poster
  • Employers liable under the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act
  • Equal Opportunity Is the Law Poster

    • Workers’ Compensation
