Florida Labor Law Posters

Employers are required to display both state and federal labor and employment posters. This means that employers must post certain notices in their workplaces so employees have access to information about the applicable labor laws. These posters, also known as workplace postings or workplace compliance posters, can be downloaded for free from our website.


Posting Requirements

The type of posters you are required to post will be determined by:

  • The nature of your business
  • The number of employees
  • The primary language spoken by your employees
  • Whether you employ people with disabilities
  • Whether you employ minors

All notices must be posted in a conspicuous place so that they can be seen and read by employees. Failure to post notices can result in stiff penalties and possible fines. 

Don't forget to visit our federal poster page to see if you require additional federal posters specific to your organization.

Florida Clean Indoor Air Act

The Florida Clean Indoor Air Act prohibits smoking in most public and private businesses. The only exemptions to this rule are private residences, retail tobacco shops, designated smoking guest rooms, stand-alone bars, facilities in which medical or scientific research is being conducted on smoking, and customs smoking rooms in airports.

These places must post signage that designates where smoking is permitted. Florida statutes say that the proprietor of an enclosed indoor workplace must develop a policy about smoking prohibitions. However, signage stating "No Smoking" is not technically required. It is only recommended in order to remind workers of the smoking policy.
