2013 editions of all employment posters available free from BOLI
PORTLAND – Oregon’s Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) is warning employers
throughout the state to beware of solicitations that they receive offering required employment
posters for sale. BOLI’s Technical Assistance for Employers (TA) Program, which provides a
range of resources and educational seminars to Oregon employers, provides online access to all
required posters as well as selling low-cost composites for easy workplace posting.
“The last thing that Oregon employers need is to get swindled by these operations that want to
charge $80 for posters that you can obtain for free from the enforcement agencies,” said BOLI
Commissioner Brad Avakian. “Our Technical Assistance for Employers staff goes out of its way
to collect links to the full range of required posters and make them available to all Oregon
employers, just by visiting our website.”
In addition to the basic, printable copies available onlinet, BOLI offers low-cost composites of
the various postings required for Oregon employers. Versions in English and Spanish are
available, both for smaller employers not covered by the Oregon Family Leave Act and federal
Family and Medical Leave Act, and for larger employers who need the full-size eight-in-one.
BOLI’s composite posters cost just $10 each, plus shipping.
“The best place for employers to get information about legal requirements is from the agency
that enforces the law,” said Jennifer Germundson, TA Program Manager. “Employers aren’t
required to buy our inexpensive composite posters, but it’s a very convenient way to meet your
obligations and not pay the inflated prices of commercial vendors.”
BOLI TA empowers Oregon employers through educational seminars and other resources that
promote legal compliance, including TA’s 28th Annual Employment Law Conference, coming up
in November. Visit www.oregon.gov/BOLI for more information about all of BOLI’s work to
support Oregon workers, local employers and a stronger economy.
