New Required EEOC Compliance Posters Now Available
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) recently released a new “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster. The new poster includes updates from the Department of Labor and reflects current federal employment discrimination laws (including the ADA Amendments Act of 2008). The new poster also includes changes to the law, such as the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, which took effect November 21, 2009.
All covered employers (those with 15 or more employees) must display the new poster on their premises, in an area visible to employees and applicants. Posters may be obtained in English; they also are available in Spanish, Arabic and Chinese, and should be posted in those languages if your company employs individuals for whom Spanish, Arabic or Chinese is their primary language.
