With the world becoming more mobile and diverse, diversity has taken on new importance. The EEOC can help small business owners! The EEOC is the federal government agency that enforces the federal laws against employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, and genetic information. These laws also prohibit retaliation (punishment) for opposing or reporting discrimination or participating in a discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
