EEOC Extends Period for Input on Proposed Enforcement Guidance on Unlawful Workplace Harassment

Monday, February 6, 2017

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that it has extended for 40 days the public input period on its proposed enforcement guidance on unlawful workplace harassment. The proposed guidance is now open for public input until March 21, 2017.

The proposed guidance, which is the product of extensive research, analysis and deliberation, explains the legal standards applicable to claims of unlawful harassment under federal employment discrimination laws. The laws enforced by the EEOC protect individuals from harassment based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age or genetic information.

Public input may be submitted online at until midnight on March 21, 2017. Alternatively, members of the public may send written feedback to: Public Input, EEOC, Executive Officer, 131 M Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20507.

After reviewing the public input, the Commission will consider appropriate revisions to the proposed guidance before finalizing it.
