The Missouri Commission on Human Rights have published different labor posters that need to be displayed in the workplace. The Missouri State Labor poster includes three separate Anti-Discrimination posters. These mandatory labor posting for Missouri include:
- Labor Discrimination
- Housing Discrimination
- Discrimination in Places of Public Accommodations
These Posters are available to download for free on the MO Department of Labor and Industrial Relations website. Other mandatory posters that employers are required to post include the following:
- Youth Employment Poster
- Workers’ Compensation Labor Poster
- Unemployment Insurance Notice
- Missouri Minimum Wage Poster
The Missouri minimum wage is set at $7.70. This past year, the Missouri Legislator passed a bill that prohibits local minimum wages, which means that the St. Louis minimum wage of $10.00 per hour has now reverted to the state minimum wage of $7.70.
Aside from the Missouri state labor law poster, employers need to display federal labor posters, even in cases where the Missouri state poster goes beyond the federal law. An example of this is the MO minimum wage of $7.70, whereas the federal minimum wage is just $7.25. The law is to follow the higher of the two wages.
Other federal posters that should be displayed along with the Missouri state labor posters include the following:
- OSHA poster
- Family Medical Leave Act poster
- Employee Polygraph Protection Act Poster (government agencies are exempt from this law)
- Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
- Equal Employment Opportunity Is the Law poster
The Equal Employment Opportunity Poster had a new revision in 2015. This revision is only for Contractors or Subcontractors who hold contracts of over $10,000 from the federal government.
All posters should be displayed in a place where employees will be able to read their rights, such as the breakroom, lobby, or if the company has one, a company bulletin board.
