I’d like to take a little bit of your time to briefly let you know about the labor law posters for Rhode Island. The labor law posters for Rhode Island are required to be displayed in workplaces across Rhode Island. These posters inform workers about their rights and protections that are granted under both state and federal law. The labor law posters for Rhode Island must be kept in an area where all employees have a very good chance of seeing them.
It’s the employer’s job to make sure the labor law posters for Rhode Island are displayed in an area where all employees will be able to easily see them. This area must be a place where employees are known to gather. The posters should be well-lit and free of any and all obstructions.
I think now is a particularly good time to discuss the labor law posters for Rhode Island because Rhode Island recently began requiring that businesses post the No Smoking Notice. Other state posting requirements include: Family/Medical Leave Act, Minimum Wage, Right-to-Know, Discrimination Notice, Sexual Harassment, Unemployment Insurance, and Workers’ Compensation. The federal posting requirements for the labor law posters for Rhode Island are the same as the required postings in all the other states in the United States.
Not all labor law posters for Rhode Island are required to be displayed in every workplace throughout Rhode Island. For example, Family/Medical Leave Act only applies to any business that employs fifty or more employees.
Employers must make sure that they update or add to the labor law posters for Rhode Island whenever it’s necessary to do so. It’s the employer’s job to know when an update is needed. Failure to place the labor law posters for Rhode Island in the appropriate place and/or failure to keep the posters updated is against the law.
