EEOC Issues Enforcement Guidance on National Origin Discrimination

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently issued updated enforcement guidance on national origin discrimination.  The new guidance replaces its 2002 compliance manual section on that subject. 

The guidance addresses issues related to recruitment, hiring, promotion, harassment, citizenship requirement, and retaliation.  Additionally, it covers language issues in the workplace, including the use the “English-only” rules.

EEOC's enforcement guidance documents set forth the agency's interpretation of the law, and explain how federal anti-discrimination laws and regulations apply to specific workplace situations. The enforcement guidance on national origin discrimination discusses Title VII of Civil Rights Act of 1964’s prohibition on national origin discrimination as applied to a wide variety of employment situations and highlights “promising” practices for employers to prevent discrimination.

For additional resources, including a Question and Answer Document and Fact Sheet for Small Business, visit the EEOC website or AGC’s Labor and HR Topical Resources webpage.  The primary category is “EEO.”
