The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently released a new “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster to replace one entitled “EEO is the Law.” Dealerships must prominently display the latest version of the “Know Your Rights” poster in conspicuous locations at their worksites. Such locations include poster boards accessible to applicants and employees with disabilities and employee websites.
The EEOC administers and enforces federal laws designed to protect workers against employment discrimination. The “Know Your Rights” poster is written to provide information on federal anti-discrimination law to applicants, employees, and employers. It stresses that federal law prohibits job discrimination based on race, color, sex (including pregnancy and related conditions, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, religion, age (40 and older), equal pay, disability, or genetic information (including family medical history or genetic tests or services). It also notes that employers may not retaliate against an employee for filing a discrimination charge, reasonably opposing discrimination, or participating in a discrimination lawsuit, investigation, or proceeding.
