Let’s face it, EEOC regulations (and there are plenty of them) are confusing. The Department of Labor and EEOC are slated to receive a record amount of funding in 2010 and this means more enforcement is imminent. Are you aware of your obligations in order to be an equal opportunity employer? How big of a company do you need to be to worry about this? What are the basics that you need to be aware of?
We’ll cover these basic questions and more with Jonathan T. Hyman, a labor and employment law expert. Jonathan is a Partner at Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz, an industry blogger and a frequent guest on various employment law related podcasts.
