EEOC Asks Public Input on New Guidance Addressing National Origin Discrimination

If you’d like to have some say in how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission enforces the laws against national origin discrimination, here’s your chance.

The EEOC released for public comment a draft enforcement guidance addressing national origin discrimination under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Comments are due by July 1.

Given the nation’s increasing diversity in the workplace, the EEOC wants to keep up with the times by modernizing its guidance.

In fiscal year 2015, approximately 11 percent of the 89,385 private sector charges filed with EEOC alleged national origin discrimination. These charges alleged a wide variety of Title VII violations, including unlawful failure to hire, termination, language-related issues, and harassment.

The draft guidance is available for review at https://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=EEOC-2016-0004.
