EEOC, Mexico Ink Agreement on Cooperation

Our neighbor to the south is now officially on board with working with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to combat employment discrimination against Mexican nationals working in this country.

And that can mean one thing for sure: Expect the EEOC to be more vigilant about working conditions of immigrant, migrant and other Mexican workers and to file lawsuits where the facts suggest a Title VII violation has occurred.

From the EEOC’s announcement at the signing of the “Memorandum of Understanding”:

“This national MOU exemplifies the overall intent of the EEOC and the Mexican Embassy to continue the efforts to assist the Mexican community.  Under the national framework of the MOU, the two entities will cooperate to provide outreach and training, as well as assist with enforcement efforts as needed.”
