The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated its poster regarding workplace discrimination. It’s fairly rare that a fed poster is updated so many clients of The Starr Group might not be aware of it. Both English and Spanish versions are available for download and printing.
Employers with 15 or more employees are required to display the poster, where they have other applicable employment law notices.
The effective date on the poster is 10/20/22 but the change became public knowledge more recently.
The updated poster replaces the prior EEOC poster that was entitled “EEO is the Law” which was a landscape (horizontal format), 2-page poster; the bottom page was required to be posted only by employers with government contractors.
The changes to the new poster include:
- Clarifies that sexual discrimination is illegal if it’s based on pregnancy or related condition, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
- Includes a QR code that can be used to file a harassment complaint with the EEOC.
- Includes information regarding equal pay laws for federal contractors.
- While every employer must post the first page of the revised poster, the second page of the poster should also be posted by employers who have government contracts.
