Sample Equal Employment Opportunity Policy

Federal, state, and local labor and employment law prohibit employment discrimination in connection with a broad range of protected classes. Current federal employment discrimination laws prohibit discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Genetic information

To help avoid liability and demonstrate compliance with employment discrimination laws , employers should develop and maintain an equal employment opportunity (EEO) anti-discrimination and harassment policy and provide employees with a clear procedure for addressing discrimination or harassment claims.
