Q. I know that there have been some recently enacted changes to federal employment laws (the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and the ADA Amendments Act, for example). How do these changes affect the required EEO postings for my business?
A. Federal law requires all employers covered by the federal anti-discrimination laws (those with 15 or more employees) to post multilingual notices describing the federal laws against job discrimination.
To account for two new laws you reference, the EEOC has updated its mandatory posting requirements. Employers have two options to comply with this new requirement, both of which are available on the EEOC’s web site at www.eeoc.gov/posterform.html:
- Print out and post a supplement to their existing “EEO is the Law.”
- Print and post the EEOC new poster.
Alternatively, employers can order up to 10 copies of the poster, free of charge, from the same EEOC site. If you need more than 10 copies, that web site has the address and phone number of the EEOC Clearinghouse to contact. The new posting was mandatory effective Nov. 21, 2009.
