Employers are required to post the revised U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster and remove their old one now to comply with the “Pregnant Workers Fairness Act" (PWFA), which went into effect on June 27, 2023.
The revised EEOC “Know Your Rights” poster with the relevant PWFA language is available in English, Spanish, and other languages and can be accessed here.
Click here for the EEOC’s FAQs webpage on the revised poster.
These posters must be placed in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted.
In addition to physically posting, employers are encouraged to post the notice electronically on their websites in a conspicuous location. In a situation where employees telework and do not visit an employer's workplace, the electronic posting in a conspicuous location on their employer’s website would be the only posting.
On December 29, 2022, President Biden signed the PWFA into law. The PWFA, which amends the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and is effective as of June 27, 2023, requires covered employers to provide “reasonable accommodations” to a worker’s known limitations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions, unless the accommodation will cause the employer an “undue hardship.”
Covered employers include private and public sector employers with at least 15 employees.
Finally, the PWFA also requires covered employers to post a notice describing the law’s protections, included in the revised EEOC “Know Your Rights” poster accessed here.
