All-On-One EEO Anti-Discrimination Policy Poster
Under state and federal laws, employers are prohibited from discriminating against applicants and employees based upon protected characteristics, (i.e. gender, age, race, and ethnicity, etc.). The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced that it had secured $505 million for victims of discrimination in private, state and local government, and federal workplaces. Violations of anti-discrimination laws can result in penalties up to $50,000 per complaint during an employee lawsuit.
For the past several years, the EEOC has reported record levels of discrimination charge filings. To avoid liability during a harassment or discrimination lawsuit, employers must prove in court that they communicated clear anti-discrimination policies and internal complaint procedures to employees. Additionally, all employees, supervisors, and managers should be instructed on what does or doesn’t constitute discrimination, what types of behaviors are prohibited in the workplace, and how to report an offensive incident.
Our updated All-On-One EEO Anti-Discrimination Poster features policy statements on ten types of workplace discrimination. This poster notifies your employees of their rights and obligations, describes a complaint process as required by law, and can be used in your defense during a discrimination-related investigation or lawsuit. It addresses the following critical workplace discrimination topics: age; genetics; disability; equal pay; national origin; pregnancy; race; religion; sex/gender; and harassment.
Who Needs It
All employers are prohibited by law from discriminating against individuals in protected classes. Employers with less than 15 employees must comply with state and local anti-discrimination laws. Employers with 15 or more employees must comply with federal anti-discrimination laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
Communicate Clear Policies
Posting our All-On-One EEO Anti-Discrimination Poster where notices to employees are commonly posted will clearly communicate that your organization does not promote, condone, or tolerate discrimination in the workplace. This poster can supplement any written policies or handbooks, and can be used to demonstrate your good-faith effort to communicate such policies to your staff.
Lawsuit Prevention & Defense
Failing to properly address harassment and discrimination in the workplace can lead to costly legal action against your business. This poster can be used in your defense during an investigation or lawsuit to prove that your organization took reasonable steps to prevent discrimination and communicate an effective complaint process.
