Employment Practices Liability and the EEOC

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

This website is an essential resource for every Business Owner and HR Manager.  You will find useful information, such as enforcement and litigation statistics for all enforceable statutes and real world inquires received by the EEOC’s Legal Counsel.  Data is available by state and type of charge to help you better analyze your organization’s EPL exposure.  Combine this with an in-depth coverage analysis and you will be taking the right steps towards managing your EPLI risk.
