Oklahoma 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.

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission provides a free 9-in-1 Labor Law Poster which includes both federal and state required posters. There is one state poster that is not included in the 9-in-1 poster: the Notice to Employees regarding Unemployment Insurance, listed below.

For information on 9-in-1 posters:

  • Contact Wanda Whitson at (405)-557-5463 or email wanda.whitson@oesc.state.ok.us
  • Contact Debra Roseburr at (405)-557-7128 or email debra.roseburr@oesc.state.ok.us.

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.
