Racial Diversity Awareness Poster
State, federal, and local employment laws prohibit discrimination based upon an individual’s race or skin color. This prohibition includes intentional harassment or discrimination (disparate treatment, racial slurs and epithets), unintentional discrimination (i.e. policies or practices that have a statistically measurable adverse effect on individuals of a specific race), and reverse discrimination. Under these laws, judgments arising from race discrimination lawsuits can include penalties, liquidated damages, and payment of the plaintiff’s attorney fees.
To help employers meet their obligations under applicable laws, prevent costly employee lawsuits, and address the recent rise in racial discrimination charges, Personnel Concepts has developed this comprehensive policy poster that can alert applicants and employees alike to your commitment to racial equality in hiring and employment. The poster also gives employees a confidential resource (person to contact) to confidentially report instances of discrimination or harassment.
