The New Workplace Discrimination Poster

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has released a new workplace discrimination poster. Titled “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal”, this is the poster employers are required to display in workplaces. The EEOC provides the poster free of charge on its website. Just click through the link in this paragraph to download a copy.

The poster outlines the types of discrimination that are illegal under federal law, including race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information. It details the federal laws against workplace discrimination and includes information on how to file a complaint.

Why an update?

First, it reflects changes in the law. The old poster didn’t go into details on gender discrimination and the rights of pregnant workers because those weren’t part of the law at the time. At the same time, the new version is intended to be easier to understand and more clear.

The update also focuses more on actions workers can take. It explains how to file a complaint and provides a QR code employees can use to click through to more information on the process.

The EEOC website offers other versions of the poster, including Spanish language versions and some that are intended for physical printing (we’re sharing the web version).

What action is required?

The poster must be displayed “in a conspicuous place” in your facility. It also makes sense to post it on your website, especially if you have remote workers.

Employers who fail to display the poster in their workplace may be subject to penalties.
