Everyone should get a fair shake and the US Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission (EEOC) works to make it happen.
The EEOC enforces Federal laws prohibiting employment
discrimination on the basis of age, race, color, religion, sex,
genetic information, national origin, or physical disability. The
Commission's jurisdiction encompasses discrimination issues for the
Federal government (as an employer), for private employers, state
and local agencies, and labor organizations. Through more than 50
field offices, the EEOC reviews and processes employment
discrimination charges and files discrimination suits on
behalf of aggrieved employees. It also provides guidance to help
employers create fair workplaces.
