The Industrial Commission of Arizona warns businesses about fraudulent ‘Final Notice’ documents being sent through the mail from the “Labor Standards Compliance Office.” These documents are designed to look like they are official notices from a government agency and claim that there is a non-compliance fee of $295.00.
Shifty Tactics Cause Alarm
Devious, high-pressure tactics like these are all too common from some poster vendors and justifiably cause alarm in government officials. Attorney General Greg Stumbo from Kentucky asks employers to be on the lookout for misleading labor law notices threatening civil and criminal penalties; some as high as $17,000. The Washington State Attorney General’s Office filed suit against a California company for violations of the Washington State Consumer Protection Act (CPA).
Government agencies will not call you asking you to purchase posters over the phone or mail out ‘Final Notices’ asking for a fee. Most state and federal labor law posters can be found online through your government agency for free. If you receive anything like this in the mail, double check the mailings. They may look official, but they probably are not.
Free Labor Law Posters
Yes, postings are indeed free from the government; however, if you manage a compliance program for multiple states, you must continually research multiple agencies for updated postings. The value of finding a reputable labor law poster company is in the ease and time savings.
