 UPDATED 2023 "Know Your Rights" Equal Employment Opportunity Poster (English) PDF

The UPDATED 2023 "Know Your Rights" 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.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - The "Know Your Rights" poster replaces the previously mandatory "EEO is the Law" and "EEO is the Law Supplement" posters for most employers in the United States as of November 2022. Replace the old posters in all workplaces ASAP.
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 provides details on submitting a discrimination complaint, and 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 "Know Your Rights" 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.
