Get in Compliance with All-Inclusive Industry-Specific Poster Services

Did you know that businesses in certain industries must display additional postings beyond the more well-known federal and state posters? Though there are many industries that must meet specific posting requirements, there are four key industries that have more complex requirements: Federal Contractors, Healthcare Facilities, Restaurant Establishments and Public Sector.

In response to growing customer demand – and to help you comply with these requirements – Poster Guard® Compliance Protection offers industry-specific services in each of these areas. Rather than track and manage posting updates on your own, you can count on our dedicated legal team to monitor all federal, state, local* and industry-specific postings and keep you in compliance.

Poster Guard Compliance Protection for these industries includes:

  • Up-to-date federal, state, local and industry-specific postings that meet strict government requirements for color, font and size

  • One year of free, automatic poster replacements (new or updated) any time a mandatory change occurs

  • A team of attorneys and legal researchers with more than 20 years of experience, who continually monitor and analyze posting changes

  • 100% compliance guarantee against posting fines for improper posting content

Federal Contractor

First, you must determine if you are a federal contractor. Ask yourself the following questions – answer yes to any of them, you’re most likely a federal contractor.

  • Does your business provide goods or services to the federal government?
  • Is your business required to use E-Verify to verify employment eligibility with new hires?
  • Did your business receive federal funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009?
  • Does your business work on federally financed construction projects?

Keep in mind that you can be in any industry and be a federal contractor, but typically these posting requirements apply to construction, banking, telecommunications, transportation and educational industries. Federal contractors in the construction industry are required to post two additional posters to avoid potential fines. That’s why we offer both ‘Standard’ and ‘Construction Industry’ versions of Poster Guard Compliance Protection for Federal Contractors.

From a posting standpoint, this industry has seen a lot of action. Since 2015, there have been eight changes including, most recently:

  • Minimum Wage (effective 1/1/17)
  • Paid Sick leave (effective 1/1/17)
  • "EEOC is the Law" Supplement (1/1/16)

healthcare facilities

Is your business a doctor’s office, hospital, clinic or urgent care center? In many states, healthcare facilities must display certain employee-facing notices in addition to the basic federal and state posters.

Posting requirements vary by state, but a majority of the mandatory posters pertain to bio-hazardous materials, radiation areas, examination of documents, and private health information (HIPAA - Notice of Privacy Practices). With Poster Guard Compliance Protection service, in addition to employee HIPAA posters, you also receive the recommended HIPAA Protecting Patient Privacy posting to ensure you are communicating the appropriate privacy information to patients.

The following states had healthcare posting updates since 2015:

  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Kansas
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Oklahoma
  • Delaware
  • Illinois
  • Michigan

Restaurant Establishments

In today’s increasingly complex posting environment, restaurant establishments need to post more than the standard federal and state postings. Depending on your state, you may also be required to display special health-related employee-facing notices regarding hand washing, no smoking, choking, tips and wages, and alcohol and minors.

Be aware that each state has its own healthcare posting requirements. For example, restaurants in New York State have five more posting requirements beyond the standard federal and state posters. And in Connecticut, a recent law requires restaurants and food establishments to post notices banning the use of e-cigarettes. (Our legal team has identified this as a growing trend and expects to see more states passing similar legislation.)

Public sector

The public sector is one of the largest and fastest-growing industries in the USA. It is composed of organizations owned and operated by the government. This often includes federal, state and local government agencies that provide public services, such as police, military, public roads, public transit, primary education and healthcare for the poor.

Employers in the public sector must comply with different posting requirements than those in the private sector. These requirements vary by state.

But that’s not all. Even the public sector federal poster is different from the private sector one, with the follow differences:

  • The Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) posting is not included as it does not apply to federal and state employers
  • The Federal Labor Standards Act (FLSA) posting is different depending on the overtime rules of certain public sectors
  • The OSHA poster is also different depending on what public sector you are in
