South Dakota doesn’t permit any illegal discrimination in the workplace. No worker can be discriminated against because of their race, religion, color, age, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, creed, ancestry, or disability. The facts of the anti-discrimination laws are contained on the South Dakota state discrimination posters. These posters help the employees to know the types of discrimination they are protected from.
The South Dakota state discrimination posters must be placed in the workplace in an area where employees can easily see them. These posters should be in a well-lit area where employees are known to gather. Employees need to make sure they know where the posters are and what information the posters contain. That way the South Carolina state discrimination posters will help employees to protect themselves.
If a person feels that he/she has been a victim of discrimination, that person should file a complaint with the South Dakota Department of Labor Division of Human Rights. The complaint must be notarized and filed with the Division of Human Rights within one hundred and eighty days from the last incident of discrimination. If the alleged victim works for an employer with at least fifteen employees, he/she can file a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission up to three hundred days after the last incident of discrimination. The Division will investigate the complaint but they don’t represent the alleged victim. For representation, the alleged victim may hire an attorney at any time.
In order to protect everyone in the workplace, including themselves, employers must make sure nobody is discriminated against. The South Dakota state discrimination posters help outline the anti-discrimination laws that must be followed. It’s the law that these posters be placed in an area where all employees will be able to see them. Failure to comply with these laws could result in the employers being fined and/or penalized.
