Do you know how to handle accommodation requests related to national origin traditions or practices?

Do you have the policies and procedures in place to curb harassment and bullying based on workers’ national origin?

On November 21, 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued new guidance on national origin discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). This new guidance is a crucial guide for every U.S. employer, as Title VII applies to nearly every employment decision, including:

  • Recruitment
  • Hiring and promotion
  • Work assignments and classification
  • Wages and benefits
  • Leave and time-off
  • Training and discipline
  • Layoffs and termination

The EEOC’s guidance spells out employer’s legal obligations under Title VII as it applies to language use, immigration status, and accommodation of national origin traditions or practices.
