  • In a recent press release, the EEOC published a one-page fact sheet designed to help small business owners better understand their responsibilities under the federal employment anti-discrimination laws.

    The fact sheet is the first in a series of publications anticipated by the Small Business Task Force to provide crucial information to small business owners to assist them in complying with our workplace anti-discrimination laws," said EEOC Chair Jenny R. Yang. "The Task Force is working to ensure that small business owners have the tools they need to ensure equal employment opportunity in their workplaces."

    The fact sheet summarizes what the EEOC enforces, what businesses the laws cover (for most of you that would be private employers that employ at least 15 employees), and then walks through the process of what happens when an employee files a charge, how the EEOC investigation is conducted and concludes by summarizing the possible outcomes of such an investigation.
