Florida labor law defines these exemptions based on Executive, Administrative, or Professional status. Learn more here.

In October 2022, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published a revised Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal poster.

Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Workplace Discrimination Law Update

  • Revised poster includes additional information regarding who is protected, covered organizations, types of illegal employment discrimination, and types of employment practices that can be challenged as discriminatory.
  • Clarified process to file a discrimination complaint through the EEOC including updated websites and new phone number
  • Added QR code
  • Newly added information for the federal Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program and coverage of employees of a company with a federal contract or subcontract

Florida Labor Law Poster Updates

All businesses within the State of Florida must display the new minimum wage and EEOC Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal posters along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our Florida & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.

Order the Florida Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
