EEOC Releases a New “Know Your Rights” in the Workplace Poster
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) released an updated “Know Your Rights” Poster, replacing its previous “EEO is the Law” poster. Employers are required to post the Know Your Rights poster at their worksites. The poster includes the following changes:
Notes that harassment is a prohibited form of discrimination;
Clarifies that sex discrimination includes discrimination based on pregnancy and related conditions, sexual orientation, or gender identity; and
Provides information about equal pay discrimination for federal contractors.
The poster also includes a QR code that can be used to access the EEOC’s website, making it easier to file a charge. The poster can be printed in both English and Spanish.
