Premier EEOC Lawyer Holding Alabama Businesses Accountable
In the United States, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces regulations that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or employee due to that person’s race, religion, sex, ethnicity and/or age. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person due to their complaining about discrimination or participation in a discrimination-related lawsuit. Keep in mind that most labor unions and employment agencies are covered by the EEOC.
Here’s Why the EEOC is Necessary
The EEOC is an incredibly important enforcement entity, as it provides leadership and guidance to related agencies throughout the U.S. government. The EEOC keeps tabs on federal agencies’ affirmative employment programs, provides technical assistance wherever needed, distributes educational materials and provides guidance to state and federal judges who oversee suits related to equal employment.
