Don’t Be Fooled: Utah Employment Poster Scam

If you have recently received a letter or a phone call about your required employment law posters in Utah, it may be a scam.

The Utah Labor Commission issued a press release November 17 warning employers not to fall for letters and phone calls soliciting a fee from them to comply with Utah and federal posting requirements.

The Commission is concerned that these recent communications might mislead employers into thinking they will be penalized for failing to pay the fee. The Commission wants employers to know that although private companies may sell employment law posters, they are all available free of charge from the appropriate state and federal government agencies.
