Employers required to display new EEO poster in workplace

Know Your Rights poster displayed on workplace wall

On October 19, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a new federal employment law poster entitled “Know Your Rights“.

The new poster replaces the current “EEO is the Law” version, and it should be posted in a conspicuous location where the employer customarily displays other notices to applicants and employees. The new poster summarizes federal employment laws and advises employees how they may file charges if they believe they have been subjected to unlawful treatment by their employer. In fact, the new poster includes a QR code that employees may use to access the EEOC’s website concerning the filing of charges against an employer.
