Workplace Poster Requirements

Government regulations mandate the display of certain posters in areas where a majority of employees tend to congregate. The Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs (OAA•EOP) maintains display cases on the main campus and hospitals, ensuring that these posters are kept current.

If you have posters in your area or need additional posters and need assistance on how to keep them current in accordance with regulatory requirements, please contact the OAA•EOP at (215) 898-6993, or email us at
