Following the attacks on Sept. 11, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is urging employers to guard against harassment of Arab-American and Muslim workers.
It wants companies to:
- Reiterate policies against harassment based on religion, ethnicity and national origin.
- Encourage employees to report improper conduct and make sure they understand the company's procedures for addressing discrimination and harassment.
- Provide training and counseling.
EEOC employees were safely evacuated from their New York district office at the World Trade Center Building 7 before it collapsed.
The next issue of You and the Law will provide additional guidance on workplace policies in light of the attacks.
