Legal Hiring for an Inclusive Workplace - SS2305AE (13 Min.)
When you are hiring in your workplace, do YOU consider if the process is proper, legal and free of discrimination? According to the laws enforced by EEOC, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it is illegal to discriminate against someone (applicant or employee) because of that person’s race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to retaliate against a person because he or she complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit. To put it simply, the law forbids ALL discrimination in EVERY aspect of employment.
