The U.S. Equal Employment Alternative Fee has issued a brand new poster, supposed to interchange the previous (as of yesterday) “Equal Employment Alternative Is the Legislation” poster.
The brand new one — “Know Your Rights: Office Discrimination Is Unlawful” — actually is kind of a bit extra user-friendly than the previous one, though as an employers’ legal professional I am undecided that is a superb factor. Nicer to have a look at, heaps extra bullet factors, which suggests individuals are extra prone to learn it, and there is a good pdf model appropriate for posting electronically, which might be welcome information for employers with distant staff. (There are additionally html variations, however I believed they have been type of ugly.)
The most important innovation on the brand new poster is a QR code that lets staff go on to the EEOC’s internet web page on “how one can file a cost.” Excuse me whereas I attempt it out . . .
. . . oh, darn! It really works! This is the consequence from my cellphone:
I’m wondering when plaintiffs’ legal professionals are going to start out doing this.
Yet another notice: In the event you have been forward of me and downloaded the brand new posters on Wednesday, you will must scrap them and obtain the variations that have been launched yesterday. There was an unidentified drawback with the Wednesday variations. (The QR code was in all probability taking folks to malware websites, or hacking into their earnings tax information, and financial institution and credit score bank card accounts.)
Simply kidding, EEOC! This is the place you may obtain all of the variations of the brand new poster.
