The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (also known as the EEOC) is the foremost authority on rules and regulations of discrimination when employers hire their employees. It is their job to enforce these laws that make it illegal to discriminate a potential employee or job applicant because of their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information. On the flip side of this, it is illegal to discriminate against someone because he or she complained about discrimination in any form. In other words, if they filed a charge or participated in a discrimination investigation or lawsuit, you can’t discriminate against them. Needless to say, EEOC compliance will be a huge help during the hiring process going into 2013.If you do disregard EEOC regulations, it can tarnish your company’s image and compromise your integrity as an employer. The increase of hiring via internet applications and the use and abuse of web tools such as social networking, complying with EEOC is more important than ever.EEOC compliant software is defensible against the aforementioned bullet points of hiring discrimination. It is a totally unbiased software that sees no color, race, religion, sex or age – which is totally goes in line with EEOC regulations.Surprisingly, compliance also pertains to job advertisements. Many times, you will see ads that require a certain amount experience or even target “recent college graduates.” Based on the regulations of the EEOC, it is also “illegal for an employer to publish a job ad that shows preference for or discourages someone from applying for a job because of their race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information.” That being said, the aforementioned ads, in a very subtle way, violate EEOC regulations. To offset the chances that this can happen, EEOC compliant software has the ability to create job ads that steer clear from such violations and make ads that write out exactly what you are looking for in a potential employee.With EEOC compliance software, companies can avoid any problems when it comes to breaking any of the rules and regulations of the EEOC. If you are an employer with a company of at least 15 employees, it is ideal that you use the software so that you are covered because compliance does not only pertain to the recruitment process. It also includes all types of work situations, including a dismissal of an employee, promotions, harassment of any kind, training, wages, and benefits. The software would definitely be a huge help in all of those arenas.
