Assistance, Training Coming to Mexican Nationals Under EEOC-Mexico Agreement

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Detroit field office and the Mexican consulate today formalized an arrangement under which the two entities will cooperate to reduce the incidence of national origin and citizenship discrimination against Mexican nationals in the state.

The parties signed a “Memorandum of Understanding” under which, among other assistance, the EEOC will provide the consulate with Spanish-language materials explaining the laws enfored by the federal agency. The commission also will partner with the Consulate to provide information and training to remove, underserved areas of Michigan, including the western side where there are many migrant farm workers.

This week–dubbed Anti-Discrimination Information Week–the EEOC will provide visitors to the Consulate with information on the laws enforced by the EEOC, specifically focusing on sexual harassment, national origin harassment, retaliation and Youth@Work, an EEOC campaign which deals with the problem of the sexual harassment of teenaged workers.
