Virginia Requires Seizure First Aid Poster

Effective July 1, 2022, employers of 25 or more employees in the Commonwealth must physically post information on seizure first aid in the workplace in a place visible to employees.

The Department of Labor and Industry will disseminate the information electronically and by other yet to be determined means. The information will be fully consistent with information and guidelines developed by the Epilepsy Foundation of America and any of its successor organizations.

Next Steps for Employers

Once the applicable poster is made available by the state, impacted employers should ensure that it is posted in a prominent location within the workplace where it is easily accessible by employees.

HR Works will continue to monitor the release of the poster and provided up information when it is available.
