Small businesses and starts-ups with limited legal budgets and long to-do lists now have an on-line resource available to help them comply with federal anti-discrimination laws. At the end of last year, the EEOC announced the launch of its Small Business Resource Center. In its press release, the EEOC writes:
“In addition to providing general information on EEOC’s laws and ways in which EEOC can assist small businesses, there are also answers to frequently asked questions, guidance in making employment decisions and tips for small businesses on a variety of potential workplace discrimination issues.”
Not so new news, but as reminder for Texas employers — the Texas Workforce Commission provides on-line resources for Texas employers. You can download, or the TWC will send you, a free copy of its handy reference book entitled Especially for Employers.
