Per the Division of Workers' Compensation, there is no penalty for failing to post the Broken Arm poster.

If an employer outside the construction industry with fewer than four employees chooses not to secure the workers' compensation coverage, he must post clear written notice in a conspicuous location at each work site telling the employees and others of their lack of entitlement to workers' compensation. FS 440.055

There is no Division mandated form for this notice. It must simply state that the employer is not required to secure workers' compensation coverage and that the employer does not have coverage.

The employer must also post the Anti-Fraud poster
