Preventing Discrimination For Dummies!

Hey!  Yes you – small business owners and start-ups!

Look what the EEOC did just for you!

Person, Human, Child, Girl, Blond

The EEOC just issued a really simple – I mean really simple – single page fact sheet entitled “Preventing Discrimination is Good Business.”

You can find it here in English.

It is a good, cheat-sheet sized resource for those who are just starting out, or are too small for in-house HR people or lawyers, or even for those who need quick (albeit necessarily very limited) answers or resource references.

The EEOC noted that the sheet “provides a shortened, user-friendly overview of the legal obligations of small businesses under the anti-discrimination laws.  It also provides information about other EEOC resources available for small business owners.”

Check out other EEOC publications at: http://www.eeoc.gov/eeoc/publications/

You can print copies of this sheet from the EEOC website in many languages:  Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese, English, French (Canadian), French (European), German, Greek, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Hmong, Japanese, Karen, Khmer, Korean, Laotian, Marshallese, Nepali, Polish, Punjabi, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Ukrainian, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

What – no Yiddish?  Oy vey!
