District of Columbia’s Equal Employment Opportunity Poster Updated

Our esteemed capital, the District of Columbia, has added to their mandatory Equal Employment Opportunity labor law poster four new categories which may no longer be grounds for discrimination.

The new categories are: familial status, source of income, place of residence and/or business, and current status as a victim of intrafamily offense.

Under the D.C. Human Rights Act of 1977, discrimination against anyone who falls into these criterion is now strictly prohibited.
