Today the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission released a new poster that is required for employers covered by Title VII. The new poster is entitled “Know Your Rights” and includes these changes:
- Notes that harassment is a prohibited form of discrimination;
- Clarifies that sex discrimination includes discrimination based on pregnancy and related conditions, sexual orientation, or gender identity;
- Adds a QR code for fast digital access to the how to file a charge webpage;
- Provides information about equal pay discrimination for federal contractors.
The poster can be found https://www.eeoc.gov/poster. As always, if you have questions about this alert or posters in general (e.g., how does this affect my remote workforce?), contact a member of the Ruder Employment law Team.
