cpp3State & Federal Labor Law Posters

$49 first time purchasers

$29 renewal rate for returning customers who have purchased in the previous 12 months

Chamber Code: HLCC

Do I have to post labor law posters?
Yes, if you have one or more employees. Required notices exist so your employees are aware of their
employment rights and various workplace laws and regulations. These postings must be available in a common area regularly visited by employees where they have an unobstructed opportunity to visit them.

How often do labor law posters change?
No one can accurately predict this as the posting revisions result from regulatory or legislative changes that follow no set time table. Notices also come from a number of different State and Federal agencies, which makes it very difficult for the average employer to know which notices are required, when they change or even where to find them.

Your Labor Law Compliance Poster Set includes all of the required notices that employers are required to display:

  • Michigan Law Prohibits Discrimination
  • Michigan Employment Security Act
  • Michigan Whistleblowers Protection Act
  • Michigan Right to Know/SDS Location
  • New or Revised SDS
  • Michigan Youth Employment Standards Act
  • Michigan Safety and Health Protection on the Job
  • Michigan Minimum Wage Law of 1964
  • Michigan Wage and Hour Division General Rules
  • Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law
  • Notice to Workers with Disabilities
  • Federal Minimum Wage (Your Rights Under the Fair Labor Standards Act)
  • Your Rights Under the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Employee Polygraph Protection Act
  • OSHA

We are seeing a lot of fluctuations in the compensation and benefits area, which is making it difficult for Michigan employers to know if they are paying their employees in line with the rest of the state and, more specifically, within their industry. And, of course, providing affordable health coverage, while remaining competitive with others in the industry, is a huge challenge. The Michigan Chamber has been offering a multi-industry salary and benefits survey for over 16 years that provides employers with current, accurate compensation information needed to attract and retain quality employees; and it allows competitors to share current wage information with each other while maintaining complete participant confidentiality. Learn how you can participate and gain immediate access to this wealth of information. More than 4,300 organizations participate across the United States with over 450 from the Great Lakes region and growing!
