Discrimination Claims Against Businesses Continue To Rise, But Most Are Without Merit

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) job is to enforce federal laws against discrimination based on sex, religion, race, age, national origin, disability or genetic information. These laws apply to every work situation including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, payment and benefits. If an employer has fifteen employees (or 20 in age discrimination cases), they are likely covered by EEOC laws.
