Delaware Free Printable Labor Law Posters Posters Delaware Labor Law Information Poster Required

 Labor Law Information Poster PDF

The Labor Law Information Poster is a labor law posters poster by the Delaware Department Of Labor. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Delaware, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees in the state of Delaware will see it. It describes the many different parts of labor laws including payment of wages such as how often wages must be paid, what employers are required to notify employees of when they are hired, and what unlawful deductions are. Also described is everything an injured employee needs to get workers' compensation, what the minimum wage is for tipped and untipped workers and what the exceptions are to minimum wage, what to do if discriminated against in the workplace, how the state deals with breaks, and the rules for child labor.


DE All-In-One Labor Poster: Instead of printing out dozens of posters, employers can also purchase an all-in-one poster that covers both Delaware and Federal poster requirements by clicking here .
