During Monday's episode, Laurel went to the premises to ask Nicola King for more shifts, as she needs to earn extra cash after Bob decided to quit working at the cafe.
Laurel said: "Nic, I just wanted to ask you – if there's any extra shifts, you'll think of me first, won't you?"
"I always think of you first," Nicola replied.
But it wasn't Laurel's financial situation that got viewers talking – it was that the health and safety poster on the wall behind her is four years out of date.
As you can imagine, pedantic Emmerdale viewers took to Twitter to make their feelings known.
One wrote: "Did you know that your show is technically bad! Health and Safety poster is illegal! #notsigned #2015 #criminaloffence".
Another said: "Come on @ITV it’s about time the sweet factory in #Emmerdale got a new H&S Law Poster, this one is 4 years out of date now! #healthandsafety #HSE".
A third wrote: "@ITV the factory in #emmerdale needs to replace their health and safely law poster with the correct poster. #attentiontodetail #healthandsafety".
A fourth wrote: "They used to have the new one….I tweeted a picture of it a few years ago….lol..not many places go backwards!!"
According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE), employers are required to either display the correct poster or distribute the equivalent leaflets to its employees.
Elsewhere on Emmerdale, fans have spotted a major blunder with Rebecca White's captivity.
The barmaid is currently chained up in a cabin after discovering her nephew Lachlan's killer secret, and with him taken away for a surprise ten day holiday, she has had to ration her meagre supplies to survive.
But that all went horribly wrong when she knocked her water over and screamed in horror as she realised she will soon die of dehydration without it.
