Required Fair Practice Notices

Section 5 of the PA Human Relations Act requires PA employers, businesses, schools, colleges, lenders and housing providers to post fair practice notices. The notices inform the public of their rights and responsibilities under non-discrimination law. They protect workers, students and others and help protect your business or organization from liability. Find other mandatory labor law postings such as Minimum Wage, Child Labor, etc. on the Department of Labor & Industry's website. All PA posters are available free of charge.
