The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently released a new “Know Your Rights” poster (dated October 20, 2022), which replaces the previous “EEO is the Law” poster. This fact sheet provides answers to frequently asked questions about the “Know Your Rights” poster.

When do employers need to post by?

The laws that require covered employers to post the “Know Your Rights” poster don’t provide a specific deadline for replacing the “EEO is the Law” poster with the updated “Know Your Rights” poster. Employers should remove the old poster and display the new one within a reasonable amount of time.

Does this version replace the prior poster and the supplement?


I printed the updated poster on October 19, 2022. Do I need to print it again?

Can I request a printed copy from the EEOC?

No. The EEOC does not provide printed copies of the poster. Employers should download and print the two-page PDF.

How do I make the poster available and accessible for individuals who are blind or visually impaired?

The poster is available as a PDF that has been optimized for screen readers.

Is the poster available in languages other than English?
