Federal Posting Requirements

Various federal agencies (such as the U.S. Department of Labor, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)) require workplace postings. You may comply with these requirements by using posters available for downloading using the links below. Some of the posters are available in either black and white or color.

To receive a labor law compliance poster which addresses all six of these federal posting requirements (sometimes referred to as a "six in one poster") at no charge, contact your local South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation office.

There are are two additional federal posting requirements for workplaces that employ special populations of workers and have unique employment situations, as shown below.

Visit the U.S. Department of Labor's website for other compliance assistance resources.
