The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI) has redesigned four posters that employers are required to display in a physical location where employees can easily see them.
The free mandatory posters have been given a new consistent look, the text has been simplified and each poster is available in English, Hmong, Somali and Spanish. The free posters are now also provided in a standard size and can be easily printed individually or as a four-poster pack at www.dli.mn.gov/LS/Posters.asp.
The posters provide information about safety and health regulations, wage and overtime law, age discrimination and retirement, and what an employee should do if he or she is injured at work. DLI also makes available a poster from the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development explaining unemployment insurance benefits, as well as links to several federal government agencies that have mandatory poster requirements for employers.
Although the posters have a new look, the regulations explained within them have not changed, so employers are not required to replace their current poster set.
The posters can also be ordered at no cost from DLI by phone, U.S. mail, email or via an online form; ordering details are explained on www.dli.mn.gov/LS/Posters.asp.
The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry works to ensure Minnesota's work and living environments are equitable, healthy and safe. The agency oversees the state's programs for apprenticeship, construction codes and licensing, occupational safety and health, wage and hour standards, and workers' compensation.
