Laws & Regulations Impacting an Organization by Size (no. of employees)

Business Regulations by Employer SizeThe smaller the company, the less likely it will have to comply with certain employment laws. As a company grows, the obligations increase. The Department of Labor (DOL) administers and enforces more than 180 federal laws. These mandates and the regulations that implement them cover many workplace activities for about 10 million employers and 125 million workers. Note: There may be state and local laws that will apply in addition to federal rules. Some of the more commonly applicable federal laws based on employer size include the following:

  • One or more employees:
    • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
    • Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA)
    • Workplace Postings Requirements
    • Occupational Health and Safety Administration
    • The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
  • 15 or more employees:
    • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
    • Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA)
    • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII)
  • 20 or more employees:
    • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
    • Consolidated Omnibus Reconciliation Act (COBRA)
  • 50 or more employees:
    • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
    • Employer Shared Responsibility Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
    • Workforce Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN)
