If you’ve ever been discriminated against at work, it’s no secret that it can be a very helpless feeling. But you aren’t helpless, or alone. Mary McGee is an investigator with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She joins Living 757 to tell us more about what their agency does.
Congress established the EEOC in 1964 as a means of settling employment disputes before they go to court.
The EEOC tries to deter and prevent discrimination based on a person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability status, genetic information and more.
If you feel like you are being discriminated against there are 3 ways to file:
- Go to the website www.eeoc.gov and choose the local office, then schedule an appointment
- Walk into their local office and speak to someone in person
- Mail your inquiry into their office
