Our Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) features help you achieve EEO compliance for your company. They have been built to assist you with collecting demographic data and generating reports on such demographic data.

Note: Please keep in mind that we strongly recommend consulting with a lawyer before using these features to make sure that you are fully compliant with the laws and regulations that apply to your company.

What is EEO?

Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws prohibit US employers from discriminating against candidates based on their race, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status in numerous work situations, including hiring.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), is a US federal agency primarily tasked with enforcing federal (EEO) laws that prevent employment discrimination.

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is part of the U.S. Department of Labor responsible for ensuring that employers doing business with the federal government comply with nondiscrimination laws and regulations.

Does EEO apply to me?

Most US companies with at least 15 employees are covered by EEO laws and must collect demographic data about their candidates. Additionally, certain employers are required to collect and submit demographic workforce data annually in an EEO-1 report.
