When you have lots of employees working on multiple construction sites, it's difficult to know if each location is running in compliance with labor regulations. If you're found to be non-compliant by inspectors, a simple oversight could cost your company thousands of dollars in fines and create unnecessary work delays. Not to mention it would open your company up to possible litigation. So, if you have workers who are participating in the demolition and construction of buildings, housing, or even large scale renovations, you need to be sure that every employee is reporting to a place where the labor law posters are openly displayed.
This could mean requiring all employees to report to a central office location at least once per day; or it may mean posting the labor law posters at every job site. How you run your operations will determine what steps are needed to remain in compliance.

Required State Construction Site Posters*
Each state has it's own set of required posters. The labor law posters that you must display include the Occupational and Safety Health Act poster — specific to your state if you have an OSHA-approved State Plan, or may be a general OSHA poster if you do not. Most states also require notices regarding the Child Labor Laws, the Unemployment Insurance Policies, and any specific wage and discrimination labor laws which are unique to your state.

If your construction site is manned by Spanish-speaking employees, you are responsible for ensuring that everyone understands the required labor law posters. This may mean posting in both Spanish and English. Some states require that you post Spanish posters regardless of your worksite employee language preference. Be sure to check your state’s Department of Labor website for current information.
