Earlier this month, the EEOC asked for input on its proposed enforcement guidance covering national origin discrimination. The last time the agency addressed national origin discrimination was 2002. Due to the many legal developments since that time, the EEOC thought it needed a refresh. The 57 page guidance addresses what ‘national origin’ discrimination is, how the law applies in specific workplace situations and how the protected class overlaps with other Title VII protected classes. For example, national origin often overlaps with race, color or religious discrimination because a national origin group may be associated or perceived to be associated with a particular religion or race. Since the proposed enforcement guidance provides examples of what the EEOC perceives as national origin discrimination, employers are encouraged to review the guidance and provide input. Once released, the final guidance will replace the previous 2002 guidance.
