Recent allegations of misconduct within the National Women’s Soccer League point to a continued need to remain vigilant about sexual harassment prevention in the workplace.

Often a workplace poster is used to communicate critical information to employees. In some cases, this includes displaying a poster about sexual harassment.

State requirements

A number of states require an employer to display a sexual harassment poster. These include:

  • Alaska
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Illinois
  • Massachusetts
  • Oregon
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

In some states, such as Delaware, the sexual harassment posting is part of an all-in-one state poster.

Additional requirements

A sexual harassment posting is required for employers in New York City and Chicago.

Rarely, a state will only require a sexual harassment poster for a specific industry. This is the case in Illinois, where higher education institutions need to display a sexual harassment poster containing information for students.

Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal

There is no federal sexual harassment posting requirement, but employers with 15 or more employees must post the Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegalposting. This posting includes information about employee protections against sex discrimination.

Posting your policy

Employers in states where a sexual harassment poster is not required can display a workplace policy poster or their sexual harassment policy to underscore the fact that sexual harassment will not be tolerated in the workplace.
