Employment posters for applicants

Did you know there are employment posters that must be posted where “applicants” as well as employees can see them?

Generally, federal workplace posters must be displayed or posted in conspicuous places where they are easily visible to all employees — the intended audience.

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) posters are also required to be placed where they can be seen by applicants for employment.  Here is the guidance on those posters.

FMLA: Poster must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants for employment can see it. If an employer is covered by the FMLA, which all public sector employers are, a poster must be displayed at all locations, even those where there are no FMLA eligible employees.

EEO: Poster (“Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law”) must be posted in conspicuous places available to employees and applicants for employment.

EPPA: Poster must be posted in a prominent and conspicuous place in every establishment of the employer where it can readily be observed by employees and applicants for employment.

A good idea is to attach these posters to a small corkboard and have them available where you may be interviewing candidates.  VMLIP maintains all current employment posters on our website under HR Services, Sample Materials – Sample Employment Posters here.
