Discrimination in the Workplace: What Supervisors Need to Know

 

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information. The federal laws are very specific about the ways in which you, as an employer, are expected to select, promote, and accommodate your employees. You can be held liable for discrimination whether or not you intentionally discriminated against your employee, so it is imperative that you understand the federal laws prohibiting discrimination. This course teaches you about your responsibilities as a supervisor relative to these major federal laws (and their significant subsequent amendments) that prohibit discrimination: - Equal Pay Act of 1963 - Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) - Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) - Rehabilitation Act of 1973 - Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) - The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) - The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) Once you learn about the types of discrimination recognized by the EEOC, we will review prohibited practices, what constitutes reasonable accommodation with regard to the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the ways in which the EEOC enforces the law. We will use synopses of the law, examples, interactive exercises, and review questions to teach you how to comply with anti-discrimination laws. The information in this course is appropriate for employers and supervisors. NOTE: This course was created using a variety of sources. Nothing herein should be construed or relied upon as legal advice. If you have questions concerning particular situations or specific leave issues, you should contact your manager, human resources director, or legal counsel.
