Federal and state lawmakers enacted a plethora of employment laws in 2023. The result was an unprecedented number of updates to required labor law postings. In addition to the typical Minimum Wage increases, many states passed pay transparency legislation, enhanced discrimination protections, restrictions or bans on non-compete agreements, and increased paid sick leave regulations.
As a result, forty states updated at least one of their labor law postings in 2023. In fact, over thirty states revised more than one, and several had four or more mandatory amendments to their posters this year. Additionally, several brand new required labor law posters were added in 2023.
New Labor Law Postings Added in 2023
- Colorado: FAMLI Act
- Connecticut: Domestic Violence Resources
- New York: Electronic Monitoring Notice & Veteran Benefits and Services
- Oregon: Paid Leave
- Rhode Island: Pay Equity

However, the changes will likely continue throughout 2024 which will lead to the need for replacement posters.

These poster revisions are expected to include discrimination, domestic violence leave, veterans benefits and services, paid sick leave and any number of other notices.
