The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently released a new version of its "Equal Employment Opportunity Is the Law" poster that incorporates new regulations for the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), along with new contact information.

With GINA taking effect for employers on Nov. 21, 2009, it is imperative to make sure your labor law posters include the revised EEOC posting. Personnel Concepts has revised all of its Space Saver-1 State and Federal Labor Law Posters to incorporate the new EEOC version. Update subscribers will be mailed replacement EEOC panels for their SS-1s in November, and others should call Customer Service at (800) 333-3795 to obtain theirs. If you purchase a new state and federal labor law poster from us, it will include all new mandated postings, including EEOC’s.

GINA protects individuals from discrimination based on genetic information at work and in health care matters. Health insurers and health plan administrators came under GINA’s regulation this past May 21.
