Mississippi Notices (Posting): What you need to know

Mississippi requires that employers post several notices in the workplace informing workers of their rights and obligations under various employment laws. The notices must be placed conspicuously and in enough places to be seen easily by employees as they enter or exit the workplace and, in some cases, where they can be seen by applicants for employment.
Many of the required posters can be accessed at http://www.mdes.ms.gov.
