Tacoma, WA (WorkersCompensation.com) -- In the State of Washington, employers are required to obtain a certificate of insurance coverage and post it conspicuously in their place of business. They must have a separate certificate of coverage in each business location they operate. 

L&I will send three posters that inform employees of their rights and responsibilities as workers. They must be displayed where employees can see them. 

Q. Does a construction company have to post the posters at every job site or just in the construction office?

A. The key consideration is where the employees report for work. If your employees report to a central office, posting in the office is fine. If they report to a job shack, post them there. You may want to do both as the posters are free. You are not required to post them in a truck.

As an employer, you are required to make the posters available to your employees where they can see and read them.

Q. If I the employer has one or more employees in Washington State who work from their home or vehicle, do they have to post the posters in their home or vehicle?

A. No. As the employer, you are required to make the posters available to your employees where they can see and read them. To comply with this requirement for employees working from their home or vehicle, you may:

Send each employee a set of posters. You can order them at no cost by visiting Lni.wa.gov/Posters. You may want to document that you sent the posters to your employees.

and/or

Send each employee an email with a link to Lni.wa.gov/Posters. Instruct your employees to read the posters and print them for their records. They do not have to post them in their home or vehicle.
