OREGON POSTING REQUIREMENTS
POSTING REQUIREMENTS FOR OREGON EMPLOYERS

 
Oregon employers are required by a number of state and federal agencies to display a variety of workplace notices and posters.  Typically, these notices must be posted in a conspicuous place, where employees may regularly view them.  Employers with more than one work location are generally required to display these posters at each worksite. 
 
Certain posters must also be readily available for job applicants to view.  These include the federal Polygraph Protection Act Notice; the federal Family and Medical Leave Act poster; the OR-OSHA Job Safety and Health poster ("It’s the Law"); and the "Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law" poster.

  • NLRB Employee Rights Notice Posting 
Under a rule promulgated by the NLRB, most private sector employers will be required to post a notice advising employees of their rights under the National Labor Relations Act.  

Important note: The DC Circuit Court of Appeals has temporarily enjoined the NLRB’s rule requiring the posting of employee rights under the National Labor Relations Act. The rule, which had been scheduled to take effect on April 30, 2012, will not take effect until the legal issues are resolved. There is no new deadline for the posting requirement at this time.
For additional information regarding the status of this posting requirement, please visit the National Labor Relations Board's website.
