Frequently Asked Questions About the Revised "Know Your Rights" Poster

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently released a revised “Know Your Rights” poster (dated June 27, 2023) to include information about the protections under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act

On December 29, 2022, President Biden signed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) into law. The PWFA, effective as of June 27, 2023, also requires covered employers to post a notice describing the law’s protections. 

When do employers need to post the revised version by?

The laws that require covered employers to post the “Know Your Rights” poster don’t provide a specific deadline for replacing the current poster with the revised “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?


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.

What posting requirements do federal agencies have?

Federal agencies are subject to the laws requiring that a poster be displayed and have additional responsibilities to communicate equal employment opportunity policies and procedures to all employees. Federal agencies must add information about the PWFA to their customized posters which provide specific internal procedures for Federal employees.

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?

The poster is available in English and Spanish and will be available in additional languages at a later date.

Where should I place the poster?

Posters should be placed in a conspicuous location in the workplace where notices to applicants and employees are customarily posted.
