In Case You Missed It: EEOC Announces Updated “Know Your Rights” PosterOctober 26, 2022
UPDATE: On October, 25, 2022, the EEOC released a new “Know Your Rights” Poster. Notably, if you printed out the new poster on October 19, 2022, you will need to discard that poster and print the version marked “(Revised 10/20/2022).”
On October 19, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a press release announcing the release of its updated “Know Your Rights” poster. The EEOC enforces a number of employment laws that require employers to post a notice describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination.
Particular updates to reflect the current interpretation and enforcement of the federal discrimination laws: includes a specific reference that harassment is a prohibited form of discrimination; clarifies that sex discrimination includes discrimination based on pregnancy and related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity; provides information about equal pay discrimination for federal employers; and contains a new QR code for individuals that links directly to instructions on how to file a charge of workplace discrimination with the EEOC.
