Q. I recently heard that some of our posters have to be displayed where applicants can see them, not just our employees. Is that true?
A. Generally, federal workplace posters must be displayed or posted in conspicuous places where they are easily visible to all employees. The, Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) posters must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees and applicants can see them.
If an employer is covered by the FMLA, a poster must be displayed at all locations, even those where there are no FMLA-eligible employees. The EPPA poster must be posted in a prominent and conspicuous place in all the employer’s establishments.
Federal contractors and subcontractors covered by Executive Order 11246 must also post an anti-discrimination notice where it can be readily seen by representatives of each labor union with which the covered contractor or subcontractor has a collective bargaining agreement.
