Today the EEOC issued an enforcement guidance on national origin discrimination which replaced its 2002 compliance manual section on that subject.

Also issued are “two short user-friendly resource documents to accompany the guidance: a question-and-answer publication on the guidance document and a small business fact sheet that highlights the major points in the guidance in plain language.”

EEOC Chair Jenny R. Yang said that “This guidance addresses important legal developments over the past 14 years on issues ranging from human trafficking to workplace harassment. The examples and promising practices included in the guidance will promote compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws and help employers and employees better understand their legal rights and responsibilities.”
