Affordable ePoster Services Keep Remote Workers Informed of Labor Laws
As a business employer, you are required by state and Federal law to communicate all laws and rights that pertain to employees—even if they are working remotely. Since this is a task sometimes overlooked by employers, but one that can carry serious and expensive penalties if compliance is not met, employers are turning to ePoster services.
Within the physical office, the legal requirements set by the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) require that labor law notices be physically posted where all can see them, such as in an employee break room. (See more in our previous post: Labor Law Compliance Services.)
You Must Notify Remote Workers
When employees are remote workers, or telecommuters, notifying workers of legal rights and law changes can be trickier. But it is still your obligation to post all Federal, State, county and city posters.
To simplify transmission of labor law posting to remote workers, employers rely on ePoster services where ePosters are automatically posted to your team members whenever updates to laws or notices are made.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, large numbers of employees began to work remotely. After restrictions are completely lifted, many of them will continue working in their home offices. The employer-employee landscape may be forever changed. This will affect how employers communicate, or can communicate with their off-site staff.

What is a Remote Worker?
A remote worker, or remote employee, is someone who is employed by a company, but who actually works elsewhere than in the traditional office. This can mean they work from home, in a coffee shop, or somewhere else in the world. A study by Global Workplace Analytics reports that “56% of the U.S. workforce holds a job that is compatible (at least partially) with remote work.” And that 25-30% of the workforce will continue to work from home in 2021 at least multiple days a week.
