ARE YOUR POSTERS UP TO DATE?

Note, the EEOC changed its link.  The new link is below. (Zo 11/12/09)

When we were kids my friends and I had posters all over our bedrooms.  The Detroit Tigers and of course Farrah Fawcett, I even had a couple of fuzzy black light posters, remember them?  That’s not the kind of poster we are talking about now, sorry.

You need to update your “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster (exciting, right?).  The new EEO posters reflect the passage of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008, (GINA) which is effective November 21, 2009. The revised poster also includes updates from the Department of Labor.

There are a couple of ways to comply with the new posting requirements, a supplement to the EEOC’s  September 2002 “EEO is the Law” poster or OFCCP’s August 2008 “EEO is the Law” poster posted alongside those posters or a brand spanking-new poster all together.
