Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) is the Law

"EEO is the Law" Poster

The law requires an employer to post a notice describing the Federal laws prohibiting job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, disability or genetic information.

The "EEO is the Law" poster, prepared by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), summarizes these laws and explains how an employee or applicant can file a complaint if s/he believes that s/he has been the victim of discrimination. EEOC's poster is available in English, Arabic, Chinese and Spanish.

These posters should be placed in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted. In addition to posting the enclosed poster, employers are encouraged to post the electronic notice on their internal web sites in a conspicuous location.
