Employer Information
Posting Requirements

Laws and regulations require employers to post notices to inform employees about equal employment opportunity. Failure to post required notices may result in negative consequences for employers, including monetary penalties, tolling of a statute of limitations for employees to file charges, or an inference that an employer did not take adequate steps to eliminate discrimination and harassment.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission requires employers with 15 or more employees to post a non-discrimination notice (42 CFR 60-142).

The U.S. Department of Labor requires employers with 50 or more employees to post a notice about the Family and Medical Leave Act (29 CFR 825.300(b).

Employers with federal government contracts are required by executive orders to display additional notices.

California law requires employers with 5 or more employees to post a notice from the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH 162), and a notice about pregnancy leave (2 Cal. Code Regs 7291.16), and the law requires employers with 50 or more employees to post a notice about the California Family Rights Act (2 Cal. Code Regs 7297.9). California employers are also required to distribute to employees a CDFEH information sheet about sexual harassment (CFEHA, Government Code Section 12950).

Oregon employers are required to display an Oregon Family Leave Act poster (OAR 839-009-0300), and additional postings provided by the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (ORS 659.490).

Contact the appropriate government agencies to request copies of the required notices.
