The EEOC issued a new poster that incorporates provisions of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The new poster also includes updates from the Department of Labor. A copy of the poster can be printed here. Covered entities are required to post GINA notices not later than November 21, 2009. Covered entities include, among others, employers with 15 or more employees.
According to the EEOC, there are several ways to comply with the new posting requirement by November 21, 2009.
- Print the supplement (download here) and post it alongside EEOC’s September 2002 “EEO is the Law” poster or OFCCP’s August 2008 “EEO is the Law” poster.
- Print and post the EEOC’s November 2009 version of the “EEO is the Law” poster. (here)
- Order a new poster through the EEOC Clearinghouse. The new posters is currently on backorder and will be shipped when available.
Of course, employers can also order new posters from their vendor that provides multiple required employer posters in a single poster.
