How to Avoid Costly EEOC Violations

Tak­ing your Equal Employ­ment Oppor­tu­ni­ty Com­mis­sion (EEOC) oblig­a­tions with less than any­thing but dead-seri­ous atten­tion is risky busi­ness in today’s soci­ety.

Just as the deal­er prin­ci­pal is ulti­mate­ly respon­si­ble for the store’s prof­itabil­i­ty, so too is the deal­er prin­ci­pal respon­si­ble for root­ing out dis­crim­i­na­tion. One of the best fences a deal­er can erect to pro­tect his rep­u­ta­tion and trea­sury from an EEOC dis­crim­i­na­tion suit is to pro­vide EEOC-focused train­ing for all staff.
