Last week, the EEOC and OFCCP announced the replacement of the “EEO is the Law” poster in favor of a new poster called the “Know Your Rights” poster. Both EEOC and OFCCP have updated their websites accordingly. Importantly, as of the date of this blog post, DOL had not, yet, updated its workplace poster webpage. Printable copies for posting are available at both the EEOC and OFCCP sites.
EEOC also provided FAQs via email, which are not available on the EEOC website, at least yet.
Chief among the question answered is, by when must the new poster be posted? The answer is
a reasonable amount of time.
An additional question answered in the FAQs is whether the new poster also replaces the OFCCP Supplement. OFCCP clarified that and the answer is, yes. We now need only the “Know Your Rights” poster.
This new poster is not the only poster required for federal contractors. OFCCP has created a Guide for all required posters and other notices, including the Pay Transparency Nondiscrimination Provision.
So, time to renew your posters and make sure they are all in order.
