Mississippi 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 posters specific to your organization.

Employee Polygraph Protection Act

The "Employee Polygraph Protection Act" (EPPA) generally prevents private sector employers from using lie detector tests, either for pre-employment screening or during the course of employment, with certain exceptions. Employers generally may not require or request any employee or job applicant to take a lie detector test, or discharge, discipline, or discriminate against an employee or job applicant for refusing to take a test.

EPPA excludes federal, state, and local government agencies from the Act's coverage, with respect to public employees. Lie detector tests may also be administered by the Federal Government to employees of Federal contractors engaged in national security intelligence or counterintelligence functions.

The poster must be posted in a conspicuous area on the employer's premises where employees and applicants for employment can readily see it.

Required for: All MS Employers.

Employers may provide the notice, "Your Rights Under USERRA", by posting it where employee notices are customarily placed. However, employers are free to provide the notice to employees in other ways that will minimize costs if the full text of the notice is provided (e.g., by handing or mailing out the notice, or distributing the notice via electronic mail).

Mississippi Clean Indoor Air Act

The "Mississippi Clean Indoor Air Act" prohibits smoking in state and local government buildings, which includes university and college classroom buildings. Currently, those are the only places where smoking is prohibited by the state. Since there is no statewide ban, many localities enact their own smoking prohibitions. 

This means that it's very important for business owners in Mississippi to check with their local authority to make sure they are following the proper postage requirements. 

Required for: Some MS Employers.

Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law

Executive Order 11246 (E.O. 11246), also known as the "Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law" Poster, prohibits certain Federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. Additionally, it protects applicants and employees from discriminatory discipline, including firing, for asking about, discussing, or disclosing their pay or the pay of their co-workers. E.O. 11246 also requires covered government contractors to take affirmative action to ensure that equal opportunity is provided in all aspects of employment.

Post copies of the poster, supplement, and provision in conspicuous places available to employees, applicants for employment, and send to representatives of labor organizations with which there is a collective bargaining agreement.

The Mississippi Equal Opportunity Department encourages employers to post this in the workplace.
