Delaware Updates Discrimination and Workers’ Comp Laws

The State of Delaware updated its poster again while our poster was in production. We are currently working on the new poster, which will include all the recent changes.

What Has Changed?

The Discrimination section of the poster has been updated to reflect additional discrimination prohibitions. Among them are family care responsibilities and reproductive health decisions, both effective December 30, 2016.

Retaliation protection language has also been added to this section of the poster. Employees may not be retaliated against for filing a complaint of employment discrimination or opposing or participating in the investigation of a discriminatory employment practice.

In addition, the time limit within which employees may file claims has been extended. Employees who believe they have been discriminated against by an employer must now file a Charge of Discrimination within 300 days of the alleged unlawful employment practice. Previously, employees had 120 days to file a claim.

The Workers’ Compensation Section of the poster has been updated as well with a strong statement that employers should carry workers’ compensation insurance.
