Dear Far West Equipment Dealers Association Member:
The CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS, TITLE 29, PART 516.4 states, "Every employer employing any employees subject to the ACTS minimum wage provisions shall post and keep posted a notice explaining the ACT, as prescribed by the WAGE AND HOUR DIVISION, in conspicuous places in every establishment where such employees are employed so as to permit them to observe readily a copy". Employers with employees who are subject to minimum wage and overtime laws are required to post a notice regarding the federal minimum wage and hour laws. Failure to post this notice can result in a civil penalty of up to $1,000.00 per violation. Other U.S. Congressional laws require posting of notices, such as, THE FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE ACT OF 1993 AND THE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ACT OF 1970.

Certain notices must be displayed to job applicants. Employers must post a notice regarding the EMPLOYEE POLYGRAPH PROTECTION ACT. Failure to post this notice can subject you to a fine up to $10,000.00 for each violation. This notice must be displayed to applicants and therefore must be displayed at each employment office of the business. In addition, the EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY NOTICE also applies to job applicants as well as all employees.

State notices often bear official state seals, name the board or commission responsible for creating the notice, and quote the name of the law, or the title, code or section of the law. State notices often have phone numbers or addresses of the agencies responsible for the posting. Headlines on the notices typically say "ATTENTION EMPLOYEES", "MUST BE POSTED AT PLACES OF EMPLOYMENT" OR "NOTICE TO WORKERS". Failure to post required state notices frequently result in fines and penalties not to exceed $10,000.00 per violation.

Various laws state the notices must be displayed "where notices to employees are customarily posted", where they are "conspicuous", "readily observable", "prominent", "accessible" and "on the premises of the business".
