Frankfort: The Kentucky Labor Cabinet is reminding all employers in the state that required labor law posters are available for free at its website, Labor.ky.gov. Private companies are sending notices that offer to sell these posters to businesses.
“Business owners in Kentucky need to know that they can get these posters at no cost by going to our website,” Kentucky Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry Roberts said in a news release. “They don’t have to buy them from third-party sources. These required posters are available on our website so that anyone can download them for free.”
Employers failing to post required posters might be subject to citations and penalties, but letters sent to Kentucky businesses have threatened civil and criminal penalties up to $17,000 if they do not display certain posters being sold. Some employers might be misled into believing that these notices are official government warnings.
The attorney general’s office asks that anyone approached about buying the posters report the incident to 1-888-432-9257.
