Compliance Posters & Signage

Do you have all of the required federal and state employment notices posted in a "conspicuous place” where employees can see them? How about public health notices? The Illinois Restaurant Association supplies foodservice establishments with the posters and signage required to comply with local, state and federal health regulations. Failing to comply with these laws can result in costly fines.

Below are required employment and public health notices. Most are available to members either free of charge, or for a nominal fee.

For additional information, please contact Liz Washington, IRA Education Department, at (312) 787-4000 or
