Employment-EEOC Revises Its “EEO is the Law” Poster

The EEOC has revised its “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster. This new version reflects current federal employment discrimination law (including the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008). It was revised to add information about the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, which is effective November 21, 2009. The revised poster also includes updates from the Department of Labor.The new poster is available in English, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish.

The law requires an employer to post in the workplace a notice describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination-so the notice the employer is currently using must now be replaced or supplemented. The EEOC’s new poster (or a supplement to the current poster) may be found here.
