We often get calls from clients who are concerned about reviews of their business online. Unfortunately, the relatively anonymous nature of the internet encourages many people to post things that they might not otherwise say or write. Sometimes, these postings cross the line between consumer opinion and defamation and our office is contacted to discuss potential litigation.
Q: What workplace postings do I, as an employer, need to have?
A: The California Department of Industrial Relations and the United States Department of Labor require all employers to display certain notices in areas where employees frequently go and can easily read the information. You can download or order postings for free here. Be careful to look for and post both the California and federally required workplace postings.
