The 2018 Illinois Job Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Poster Peel ‘N Post™ adheres to existing Illinois All-On-One™ Labor Law Posters and Mobile Poster Paks™ to ensure required workplace notices are up to date.
The 2018 Illinois Job Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Poster provides information about the Illinois Human Rights Act. The law prohibits employers from treating an employee differently on the basis of the employee’s race, age, gender, pregnancy, disability, sexual orientation or any other protected class named in the Act. Employees have the right to reasonable accommodations for pregnancy or disability and the right to be free from retaliation for exercising their rights under the Act.
This poster replaces the previous “Employment Rights” notice provided by the Illinois Department of Human Rights. A new law (House Bill 138) already in effect requires that the notice provided by the Department inform employees of their right to be free from sexual harassment.
The new Illinois Job Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Poster also provides the telephone number for the new Illinois Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Helpline as one method for employees to report discrimination. The notice also advises employees to contact their employer’s human resources or personnel department, or contact the Illinois Department of Human Rights to file a charge.
The 2018 Illinois Job Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Poster must be displayed by every employer who employs one or more employees. The notice must be posted and remain posted in a conspicuous location on the premises where notices to employees are customarily posted. (775 ILCS 5/2-102(K))
Failure to post will result in a notice to show cause giving the employer 30 days to correct the violation. If the violation is not corrected, the Illinois Department of Human Rights may initiate a charge of a civil rights violation.
