While you are at it, be sure you post an updated copy of “Your Rights as a Worker” poster in an area where your employees can read it. If your staff are working from home, consider sharing the link with them as well. Don’t be fooled by companies that want to sell you the required workplace posters—all are available free of charge from the government.
