The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has released an FAQ guidance to accompany its newly revamped “Know Your Rights” poster, a workplace poster that replaces its previous “EEO is the Law” poster.
The EEOC initially released the poster on October 19, 2022, but removed that version from its site, and uploaded a revised version on October 20, 2022. Employers who printed the October 19, 2022 poster version should remove it from the workplace, and replace it with the October 20, 2022 version.
According to the EEOC, the poster should be placed in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted.
If Employers have employees with hybrid or remote working arrangements, employers should use “specific locations where their applicants and employees are most likely to see the poster — such as physical posting in common areas, digital posting on an internal website, or both.”
As per additional EEOC guidance, employers are encouraged to post the notice digitally on their web sites in a conspicuous location. In most cases, electronic posting supplements the physical posting requirement.
While the new EEOC poster should be displayed “within a reasonable amount of time, the EEOC did not set a special date for employer compliance.
