 Equal Employment Opportunity Poster (English) PDF

The Equal Employment Opportunity Poster (English) is a workplace posters poster by the Federal Department Of Labor. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in the United States, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This poster, by the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), describes protections that individuals have from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, sex discrimination (paying less to men or women when performing equal work for the same job) and genetics. The poster also describes how workers are protected from employers seeking to retaliate after a claim of discrimination is made.

Most federal Equal Employment Opportunity laws apply to most employers with 15 or more employees. Other EEOC laws such as the Equal Pay Act (EPA) apply to virtually all employers. This "EEO Is The Law" poster is required to be displayed by all covered companies. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) further requires that this notice be displayed in a handicap-accessible area.

Title \f\f of the Genetic \fnformation Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 protects applicants 
and employees from discrimination based on genetic information in hiring, 
promotion, discharge, pay, fringe bene�ts, job training, classi�cation, referral, and 
other aspects of employment. G\fNA also restricts employers’ acquisition of genetic 
information and strictly limits disclosure of genetic information. Genetic information 
includes information about genetic tests of applicants, employees, or their family 
members; the manifestation of diseases or disorders in family members (family 
medical histor y); and requests for or receipt of genetic ser \bices by applicants, 
employees, or their family members. 
All of these Federal laws prohibit co\bered entities from retaliating against a 
person who �les a charge of discrimination, par ticipates in a discrimination 
proceeding, or other wise opposes an unlawful employment practice.
