Labor Talk Blog: New Guidance on National Origin Discrimination

Firm Publication

Publications

December 6, 2016

For the first time since 2002, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has updated its guidance on national origin discrimination in the workplace in an effort to address important legal developments over the past 14 years. In 2015, the EEOC reported 11 percent of the charges filed alleged national origin discrimination. The EEOC's recent Strategic Enforcement Plan for 2017-2021 includes protecting immigrant and migrant workers from discrimination as a top substantive priority, and this guidance is another step toward increasing the EEOC's enforcement efforts in this area. Of course, with the election of President-elect Donald Trump last month, the EEOC's guidance is subject to change. However, the guidance is a useful tool to analyze employers' existing policies and practices of preventing national origin discrimination with an eye toward the EEOC's focus for enforcement action.
