New EEOC National Origin Discrimination Enforcement Guidance: How To Avoid Legal Risks
|Date / Time:
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has released new enforcement guidance on national origin discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII).
The timing seems appropriate, as tensions continue to flare over how far the Trump Administration will go with deportation efforts—not to mention campaign rhetoric to ban non-U.S. citizens of particular religious affiliations from entering the country.
The EEOC’s newly issued guidance is designed to help employers better understand their legal obligations and rights under Title VII concerning language-restrictive policies, language fluency requirements, how immigration status factors into Title VII protections, and accommodation of national origin traditions or practices.
Join us for an in-depth webinar addressing how national origin discrimination claims are bred at work, practical recommendations on how to deal with requests for accommodation related to national origin traditions or practices, and the proactive steps to curb harassment and bullying based on workers’ national origin.
About Your Presenter:
- What national origin discrimination is—and when your employees are protected under Title VII
- How to determine whether an employer’s perception of a worker’s national origin entitles that worker to protections under Title VII
- Best practices for avoiding national origin discrimination claims related to recruiting and hiring
- How to identify signs of harassment based on national origin, and proactive strategies for curbing and preventing hostile bullying and other potentially severe and pervasive conduct in your workplace
- The EEOC’s position on English-only and other language-restrictive policies, customer preferences, and more
- The difference between national origin tradition and religious practices and how the definition of each impacts your duty to grant accommodation requests that don’t pose an undue hardship on your business

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
