Recently, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued updated guidance on national origin discrimination.
The guidance addresses Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964’s prohibition on national origin discrimination and reflects the developments in the courts since 2002. Some key takeaways include the following:
The EEOC also simultaneously released two documents that further expand upon the guidance — a Q&A publication that addresses a number of common questions and issues related to the guidance, and a Small Business Fact Sheet that extrapolates the larger points of the guidance.
Should you have any questions about the new guidance, or if you are interested in workplace anti-discrimination training, please contact:
