Labor Law Compliance Services
As a business owner, you must understand and comply with government regulations regarding the requirements surrounding labor law compliance or you could face fines or penalties. Keeping up with the latest rulings can be cumbersome without a service to track them for you—like ours at Benefit Providers, ECCA Payroll Services.
What is Labor Law Compliance?
Labor law compliance sets the standards for maintaining a healthy and safe working environment, and ensures that all employees are treated fairly. It includes Federal, state and local regulations pertaining to these issues.
Common violations to Federal labor law can include:
- Failure to obtain and record I-9 forms from employees
- Hiring “under the table” to avoid paying taxes
- Failure to pay according to minimum wage standards, and other violations of hourly pay requirements
- Over-employing or mis-employing underage workers
- Not properly addressing potential workplace hazards
- Not properly documenting employee benefit plans
- Misuse of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Not understanding proper use and requirements of Workers’ Compensation
- Not following industry-specific guidelines, laws and requirements
Failure to display Federal labor law posters in appropriate locations puts the business in risk of being cite or fined for noncompliance, penalties, and potential damages from lawsuits.
Labor Law Compliance requires that labor law posters be displayed in a location that employees visit daily, like in a break room. For separate workplace areas, posters should be posted in each. Multilingual posters are required in specific states.
The only types of businesses that are not required to post labor law posters are:
- Sole proprietor/no employees
- Business using only contract employees/volunteers
