The-EEOC-What-to-Expect-in-2014

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has been responsible for monitoring and enforcing workplace discrimination regulations for nearly 50 years. Their vision is justice and equality in the workplace. They strive to stop and remedy unlawful employment discrimination. When hiring, it is important to keep a process in which to remain discrimination free, and provide yourself records in case of any review. The EEOC provides protection from discrimination in the following:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Equal Pay/ Compensation
  • Genetic Information
  • Harassment
  • National Origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Race/ Color
  • Religion
  • Retaliation
  • Sex
  • Sexual Harassment

Organizations that fail to comply with these requirements increase their exposure to lawsuits arising from discrimination investigations launched by the EEOC. Without this information, an organization would have little chance of defending itself when a charge of discrimination is brought by any person that claims to be an applicant for job opportunity once such charges are levied. IdealTraits is pleased to meet all EEOC compliance regulations and empower users to pull comprehensive EEOC reports.
