The law requires an employer to post notices describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, disability and genetic information. EEOC’s poster is available in English, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish. You may order up to 10 copies from this website.
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). The poster 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.
There are several ways for employers to comply with the law:
- Print the supplement below and post it alongside EEOC’s September 2002 “EEO is the Law” poster or OFCCP’s August 2008 “EEO is the Law” poster.
- Print and post the EEOC’s November 2009 version of the “EEO is the Law” poster.
- Order a new poster through the EEOC Clearinghouse at the address provided below. Please note that the EEOC poster is on backorder and will be shipped when the poster becomes available in the near future. The new poster will also be available in Spanish, Chinese and Arabic before the GINA statute becomes effective on November 21, 2009.
