Federal & Texas Posting Requirements:


Edited: Mar 13, 2018



Requirements State and federal laws require employers to display several posters at the workplace. Posters should be displayed in such a way that each employee can readily see them. Conspicuous Placement Generally, the requirements have language such as "conspicuously placed" and "readily accessible" to employees. That would mean employees who do not normally get to certain offices would not be served by posters displayed at those offices.

The offices, or sub-offices, where those employees normally congregate would need to have the posters displayed for the benefit of the employees who are served by each such location.

Temporary Work Sites Posters and other kinds of required notices do not have to be placed in individual locations that are only temporary work sites. For example, construction workers building homes in a subdivision would not need to have posters in each house, but rather only in a company job site trailer for the project.



Federal Required Posters

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) publishes information for employers on federally required workplace posters and other notices. See Workplace Poster Requirements for Small Businesses and Other Employers for details.

Some of the statutes and regulations enforced by agencies within the Department of Labor require that posters or notices be posted in the workplace. DOL provides electronic copies of the required posters and some of the posters are available in languages other than English.



TWC Required & Optional Posters

Payday law

All Texas employers subject to the Texas Payday Law must display a poster prominently in the workplace.

Texas employers not liable under the Texas Unemployment Compensation Act, but subject to the Texas Payday Law, must display the Texas Payday Law poster. 



Unemployment Compensation

Businesses whose employees are entitled to file for state unemployment benefits and are also covered by the Texas Payday Law should request the poster that combines both laws: Texas Unemployment Compensation Act and Texas Payday Law.


You can download the poster below or through Unemployment Tax Services, or request a copy by email or fax, or by contacting your tax office:

Optional Posters


Other Texas Required Posters

Worker's Compensation

The Texas Department of Insurance provides Workers' Compensation Employer Forms and Notices:

Earned Income Tax Credit

Texas employers must notify their employees of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) no later than March 1st of each year.  The Internal Revenue Service provides EITC materials including posters.



Additional Posters for Public Employers

Public employers, including Workforce Solutions Offices, may be required to display additional posters.

  • You Have the Right to Not Remain Silent The Texas law known as the Whistleblower Act prohibits retaliation against public employees who report official wrongdoing. A state or local governmental entity must inform its employees of their rights under this chapter by posting the notice in a prominent location in the workplace.

  • Worker Right to Know Notice English Spanish The Texas Hazard Communication Act requires public employers to provide employees with specific information on the hazards of chemicals to which employees may be exposed in the workplace.

  • Job Service Complaint System The U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (ETA) requires state workforce agencies, including Texas Workforce Solutions offices, to display an ETA-approved Job Service Complaint System poster.
