Mission Statement

To combat employment discrimination through strategic law enforcement, reflects the EEOC's primary mission of preventing unlawful employment discrimination through the administrative (investigation and conciliation) and litigation enforcement mechanisms Congress has given the agency with regard to private employers, labor organizations, employment agencies, and state and local government employers.

Description

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, gender identity, and sexual orientation), 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.

Most employers with at least 15 employees are covered by EEOC laws (20 employees in age discrimination cases). Most labor unions and employment agencies are also covered.

The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.
