On July 14, 2017, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) reminded all contractors and employers covered by the agency’s nondiscrimination and EEO laws of their posting obligations. According to the OFCCP’s email and website, contractors must prominently post the “Equal Employment Opportunity is the Law” poster on their premises. The notice must be displayed in a location “where it can be readily seen by employees and applicants for employment.” The poster provides information on the nondiscrimination and EEO laws and also covers the procedures for filing complaints of violations with the OFCCP.

The OFCCP’s communication also reminded contractors that the poster is free and downloadable from the agency’s website. According to the agency, contractors “never have to pay a third party for OFCCP’s EEO poster.” The posters are available in English (EEO is the Law and its supplement), Spanish (EEO is the Law and its supplement), and Chinese (EEO is the Law and its supplement).  

Additional workplace posters, including ones on the minimum wage, family and medical leave, and pay transparency, are available on the U.S. Department of Labor’s website.
