NJ Lawyers Help You Navigate the Employment Opportunity Commission “EEOC”
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces federal laws prohibiting discrimination against a job applicant or an employee because of:
- Sex (including pregnancy);
- National origin;
- National origin or ancestry; or
- Because they complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.
Employers with at least 15 employees, labor unions and employment agencies are covered by EEOC laws. When employers hire, fire, promote or demote employees, they risk EEOC violation lawsuits if they do not comply with these laws.
Given the complexities involved with dealing with the EEOC in New Jersey, we advise you to contact one of our experienced employment lawyers and business attorneys at 973-627-7300 at Einhorn Harris today. We handle employment and discrimination issues throughout New Jersey.
