The U.S. Equal Employment Alternative Fee has issued a brand new poster, meant 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’ lawyer I am unsure that is factor. Nicer to take a look at, heaps extra bullet factors, which implies individuals are extra prone to learn it, and there is a good pdf model appropriate for posting electronically, which can be welcome information for employers with distant employees. (There are additionally html variations, however I believed they have been sort of ugly.)
The most important innovation on the brand new poster is a QR code that lets staff go on to the EEOC’s net web page on “how one can file a cost.” Excuse me whereas I attempt it out . . .
. . . oh, darn! It really works! This is the outcome from my telephone:
I ponder when plaintiffs’ attorneys are going to start out doing this.
Another be aware: If you happen to have been forward of me and downloaded the brand new posters on Wednesday, you may must scrap them and obtain the variations that have been launched yesterday. There was an unidentified downside 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.)
