Which federal employment posters must be seen by applicants, and how should an employer comply with this requirement?
There are three federal employment law posters that must be available to applicants: the FMLA poster, the EEO poster and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act poster.
“Most of our poster regulations were written before the Internet was used for job postings. Until the regulations are revised, please place a prominent notice on the website where the job postings are listed stating that “Applicants have rights under Federal Employment Laws” and link to the three posters: Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Poster (FMLA regulations were revised to allow for electronic posting as long as such posting otherwise meets the requirements of the regulations.); Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Poster; and Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA)Poster. Please note, however, that posting the notice on the employer’s website in this manner is not a substitute for posting these EEO posters in conspicuous places on the employer’s premises where otherwise required.”
