Get Required Workplace Posters at No Charge
Kentucky statutes and federal regulations enforced by agencies within the Department of Labor require that certain posters or notices be posted in a conspicuous area in the workplace. Posting requirements vary by statute; that is, not all employers are covered by each of the Department of Labor's federal or state statutes and thus may not be required to post a specific notice.
However, for those posters and notices that cities must post, there is no need for cities to purchase from companies, as cities can find all the required posters at no cost on the following links:
Kentucky Safety Poster:
Kentucky Child Labor Laws:
Kentucky Wage and Hour:
Kentucky Wage Discrimination:
Kentucky Equal Employment Opportunity:
The US Department of Labor website also provides assistance for employers in deciding which federal posters are required at https://www.dol.gov/general/topics/posters, as well as providing those posters for free.
KLC strives to notify cities of new poster requirements and changes as they occur; however, all city employers should check the above link and the Federal and State Department of Labor websites frequently as the statutory laws and federal regulations can change. Failure to comply with the requirements for posting can result in fines of up to $7,500 per inspection.
