Effective June, 27, 2023 - New Employee Workplace Posters “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal”

Due to new rights granted under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) and the Providing Urgent Maternal Protections for Nursing Mothers Act (PUMP Act), employers must display a new version of workplace posters. 

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently released two new posters with additional information about the new laws. The posters broadly explain workers' rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated its “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination Is Illegal” poster with the new information.

Employers must replace the August 2016 version with the April 2023 version, which can be printed from the EEOC’s website. The posters are available at this link, in English and other languages.
