New EEOC Document to Fight Workplace Discrimination

May 25th, 2016

With numerous states passing laws that many find to be discriminatory to certain groups, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has published a new document aimed at discouraging business owners from policies considered to be discriminatory. The document entitled “Preventing Discrimination is Good Business” seeks to inform employers on just what their responsibilities are to their employees.

In the eyes of the federal government, employers, in order to avoid discrimination charges, must make sure that they are:

  • Ensuring that any decisions, policies, and practices are not made based on a person’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or genetic information.
  • Acting in accordance with the Equal Pay Act of 1963 where applicable.
  • Stopping and preventing harassment and discrimination.
  • Making sure that employees are not punished for reporting instances of discrimination.
  • Ensuring that employees are not harassed by supervisors and coworkers because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or genetic information.
  • Providing relevant accommodations for any doctors’ appointments or religious observances employees may require.

Further responsibilities and suggestions can be found on the EEOC’s website. Philadelphia employment lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates P.C. commend the EEOC on their efforts to minimize workplace discrimination.
