EEOC Launches Small Business Center


Earlier today, the EEOC initiated an online resource center for small businesses.  The resource is targeted specifically toward small businesses, with an eye toward helping them comply with federal anti-discrimination laws, which can often seem daunting and complex to new and small employers.  The resource includes tips, videos, answers to frequently asked questions, and other information on these laws.  From the EEOC press release on this new resource:

"The Small Business Resource Center (SBRC) . . . provides a user-friendly one-stop source for information on federal employment anti-discrimination laws. The Resource Center was designed for the busy small business owner who needs information both quickly and in a format that is easy to understand. In addition to providing general information on EEOC's laws and ways in which EEOC can assist small businesses, there are also answers to frequently asked questions, guidance in making employment decisions and tips for small businesses on a variety of potential workplace discrimination issues.

EEOC is also launching the first in a series of short videos for small business owners on frequently asked compliance questions. The videos feature EEOC employees from across the country addressing topics, such as responding to an EEOC discrimination charge, and many helpful strategies for small businesses to follow when they start the hiring process."

This appears to be a great resource for small businesses, and will hopefully lead to greater compliance with federal anti-discrimination law.
