The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was created to enforce employment discrimination laws that prohibit employers from treating a job applicant unfairly due to their age, disability, race, color, sex or religion. Equal opportunity laws apply to all aspects of employment, including firing, promotions, hiring, training, compensation, benefits and harassment, and also prohibit employers from retaliating against workers who exercise their rights under these statutes.
