Practice Note
Compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws requires covered employers to inform employees of their right to be free from workplace discrimination and retaliation. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires employers to post workplace notices, and covered employers typically include a policy statement on equal employment opportunity (EEO) in employee handbooks and other sources of workplace policies distributed to employees. EEO policies also apply to vendors, contractors and other third parties with whom the employer conducts business. Employers with government contracts or that receive government funding may have additional notice of rights requirements. State or local laws may expand the list of protected categories. This policy statement expressly addresses the prohibition on workplace harassment. For information about state and local EEO requirements, see SHRM’s State Chart: Equal Employment Opportunity/Discrimination Laws. For more information about the EEOC’s notice posting requirements, see The “EEO Is The Law” poster.
