Misleading Poster Sales Pitches - More Businesses Being Duped!

Remember that posting from a couple of months ago, Beware of Deceptive Claims? Well, those deceptive claims are rearing their ugly heads again. The Associated Press reported about a Lansing, Michigan company called the Mandatory Poster Agency that sent out stern warnings to restaurants and convenience stores to convince them they needed to display posters on proper hand-washing or face fines.

Please keep this in mind, with the new minimum wage law — we anticipate there will be an onslaught of misleading marketing offers from poster companies to businesses of all sizes. You have a number of choices for purchasing your updated Federal Labor Law poster. Many companies have similar sounding names making it difficult to know who's-who and to verify their quality and service standards. Before you buy from any company you don't know through first-hand experience,you should take the following steps:
  • Verify whether posters meet exact agency specifications for font size, poster size, color and layout.

  • Confirm with the seller that the people who monitor changes are labor law experts and attorneys qualified to interpret the posting requirements and ensure any changes are properly communicated.

  • Check with the Better Business Bureau to ensure the seller has a satisfactory rating or if they have a rating at all. You should investigate further any business that is without a rating as it may be an indication that they don't have a proven track record.
When you are dealing with Compliance issues, you don't want to take any chances — you should demand unimpeachable service and uncompromised standards.
