EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) compliance efforts by an organization involve ensuring that applicants and employees are not discriminated against on the basis of one’s race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. In addition, these stakeholders should not be discriminated against in a retaliatory manner after filing a charge of discrimination or participating in a related investigation.
For companies with 100 or more employees (or fewer employees in the case of federal contractors), the EEOC and the Department of Labor’s OFCCP (Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs) require annual submission of the EEO-1 Report which is commonly known as the Employer Information Report. This report gathers information about gender and race/ethnicity for a certain type of job grouping.
