The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) just published a one page summary that small employers or new human resources professionals may find useful.
The fact sheet, which is titled: "Preventing Discrimination is Good Business," provides employers with a quick summary of their responsibilities, access to information about the American With Disabilities Act and contact information for the EEOC, including a link for more information about training.
Just a quick note though … there are other protected statuses not identified in the publication.
For example, under Michigan law, weight, height, marital status, and misdemeanor arrest records cannot be used to make employment decisions. Also, sex includes pregnancy and conditions related to pregnancy, and the EEOC takes the position that sexual orientation and transgendered status are also protected statuses.
