As per the laws of California, it is mandatory for any business to display the labor law poster at the workplace. This is important and if you fail to do so, you can be fined or you might even invite citations for the business. In fact, it is also your duty to have the California labor law poster updated regularly. This does not mean that you must change the poster on the occasion of Christmas or New Year. But it is compulsory that you change the poster whenever there is a change in the law of the state.
The California labor law poster should cover a number of topics and these are generally the topics that relate to the safety, the protection and the rights of the employees. The types of the notices and the posters that one needs to place entirely depend on the kind of the business owned, but there are some general laws that must be placed. It is important that along with the posters that speak of the state law, you also have the posters that display the laws of the federal government as well. There are some topics that relate to the harassment and the discrimination that also should be placed. The laws that define the compensations that the worker should get when he suffers an injury while working, the laws that ensure the safety and the protection of the health in the working place and also the benefits of the unemployment insurance along with the information of the emergency.
Apart from the California labor law poster every office should also have a complete copy of the IWC wage order. This notice has the specifications of the wages, the working hours and also the working conditions of the industry. All these laws can be changed from time to time and therefore you should also take care that all these laws are changed from time to time.
