The opinion of many people is that if business is left to their own devices they will do whatever they have to do to make the most profit. They will not worry about things such as employee safety and they will not pay a fair day’s pay of fair day’s work. The thought about most business is that they are greedy and if there are no rules about how they need to operate, many people will suffer. Fortunately, there are plenty of rules that are in place that can force businesses to act in an appropriate manner. The state and federal government has come up with certain things that they expect a business to do to protect their employees. It is also a requirement that they make their employees aware of what some of these rules are. This is done by putting up State compliance posters in locations where all employees will be able to read them.
The federal guidelines for these posters include information about the federal minimum wage, OHSH, safety and health regulation, and the family medical leave act. Arizona labor posters will not only include information about the federal rules and regulations they will also include laws that are related to the employees and employers in the State of Arizona. These include things such as the Minimum wage in Arizona, the discrimination policy, the unemployment insurance rules and several others.
Of course putting gall of these rules and regulations onto a poster does not force a business to do these things. There are recourses in the law that will help enforce all of these labor laws that are listed on the state compliance posters. The only problem is that a business has to be caught if they are going to be punished for breaking the rules. If no one is there to tell them they are doing something wrong and to make them correct it than the laws will not work. That is where the posters can come in handy.
When employees see the Arizona labor posters in their break room and read them they become aware of the rights they have. They can also learn what their rights are if they report the business for breaking the rules and there is information about how to report the business. In that way the posters are helping to enforce the rules and can be a key part in getting companies to comply with the rules that they are supposed to be followed.
