In the meantime, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) just released a “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster. It replaces the “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster last revised in 2009. The EEO is the Law poster is part of a 38 x 25 6-in-1 federal poster, which the Alabama Retail Association last mailed to all members in 2016 and reprinted in 2017.

The “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster informs employees of their rights to be free from unlawful workplace harassment and discrimination under federal law.

The Alabama Retail Association will mail its members a new 6-in-1 federal poster with the Equal Employment Opportunity changes as soon as possible. In the meantime, print out this pdf version and place it near where your other workers’ rights posters are posted. Employers with 15 or more employees are required to post the EEO poster “in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted.” The EEOC also encourages employers to post a digital version of the poster on the company website to inform remote or hybrid workers of their rights.
