City of Phoenix Equal Employment Opportunity Department Hosts Workshop

By Inactive Writer

According to last year`s report by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the charges filed against private sector employers decreased by 5 percent last year.  Agency`s officials explained that outreach and training efforts have been factors responsible for the decline.  The most frequent complaints were related to racial or sexual discrimination.

Answers for many of the questions about equal employment opportunity requirements under federal law will be presented in the upcoming Phoenix Equal Employment Department Workshop. The initiative is part of the agency`s continued effort to address discriminatory practices and to disseminate information about several employment topics.

In a two-hour seminar, Phoenix Equal Employment Department representatives will define how to identify protected classes covered by the law, how to prevent sexual harassment, what constitute discrimination, and the American with Disabilities Act. Participants will also have an opportunity to talk about general concerns and to find out more about resources available in the community.

The Phoenix Equal Employment Department workshop will take place at the Mountain View Community Center, and those interested in participate should register by calling call 602-262-7486 (voice) or 602-534-1557 (TTY).
