Share

Update Applicable to:
All employers.

What happened?
On October 25, 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a new “Know Your Rights” poster, which replaces the previous “EEOC is the Law” poster. This fact sheet answers frequently asked questions about the “Know Your Rights” poster.

What are the details?
Below are some Questions and Answers provided by the EEOC which can help guide employers and businesses.

When do employers need to post?
The laws that require covered employers to post the “Know Your Rights” poster don’t provide a specific deadline for replacing the “EEO is the Law” poster with the updated “Know Your Rights” poster. Employers should remove the old poster and display the new one within a reasonable amount of time.

Does this version replace the prior poster and the supplement?
Yes.

I printed the updated poster on October 19, 2022. Do I need to print it again?
Yes. The new version of the “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster has replaced and supersedes a version uploaded on 10/19. Please use the version marked “(Revised 10/20/2022)” going forward.

Can I request a printed copy from the EEOC?
No. The EEOC does not provide printed copies of the poster. Employers should download and print the two-page PDF.

Are federal agencies required to display the poster?
Yes, federal agencies are subject to the laws requiring that the poster be displayed and have additional responsibilities to communicate equal employment opportunity policies and procedures to all employees.

How do I make the poster available and accessible to individuals who are blind or visually impaired?
The poster is available as a PDF optimized for screen readers.

Is the poster available in languages other than English?
The poster is available in English and Spanish and will be available in additional languages later.

Where should I place the poster?
Posters should be placed in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted.
