EEOC Launches Small Business Task Force to Focus on Improving Outreach to Small Businesses

/ 02/25/2012

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency charged with enforcing the federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination, recently announced that it has launched an internal task force that will focus on expanding and improving its outreach efforts and technical assistance to small businesses. The task force will strive to find ways in which the EEOC can better collaborate with small business owners to ensure compliance with federal anti-discrimination laws.


Specifically, the task force will develop recommendations on how to:
• Utilize new technology to expand outreach;
• Develop technical assistance and training initiatives;
• Identify specialized approaches to aid small businesses owned by women and minorities;
• Identify specialized approaches for businesses with fewer than 50 employees; and
• Enhance small business information and training on the EEOC’s website.


Many small business owners struggle to find the time and resources to ensure compliance with anti-discrimination laws. They may also mistakenly believe these laws do not apply to their businesses. But, for example, the Equal Pay Act applies to virtually all employers and both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act apply to employers who have at least 15 employees.


To speak to a Texas employment law attorney about an employer’s legal obligations under state and federal anti-discrimination laws, please contact the employment lawyers at Clouse Dunn LLP via email at or telephone at 214 220 3888.
