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.
