Find out which employees can sue you (and for what reasons) in the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's new compliance manual on thresholds for discrimination claims. It explains who are "covered" employees, when a claim is filed timely, the minimum employer size of targeted companies and more.
The document covers the statutes that the EEOC enforces: Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Americans with Disabilities Act (Title I), Equal Pay Act and Rehabilitation Act. It's also rewritten in plainer English and includes cross-references to make it easier to use.
Read the document at www.eeoc.gov/docs/threshold.html or get a hard copy by calling (800) 669-4000.
