On October 19, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission(“EEOC”) issued a new poster to be displayed in the workplace by all employers with 15 or more employees. The “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster replaces the previous “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” and describes the Federal laws prohibiting employment discrimination, including the procedure for an employee or applicant to file a complaint for violation of those laws. The new poster is available for printing, electronic posting, and screen reading in English and Spanish HERE. Translations in other languages are forthcoming.
The EEOC encourages employers to post the mandatory notice digitally on their websites and physically post it in a conspicuous location in the workplace. The poster also must be made available in a location accessible to applicants and employees with disabilities that limit mobility and in an accessible format for persons with disabilities that limit the ability to see or read. Other federally required posters can be found
