EEO Policy

Anonymous - Jan 11, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

For federal contractors, I know that at a minimum we must include references to the protected classes: race, gender, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status and disability. Are we required to include EEOC protections or state protections too or is this just a best practice? I have no desire to create multiple policies for essentially the same subject. Most often, I have seen just the minimum federal contractor protected statuses, so I am wondering if what we have stated is overkill. Where can I find what is required from a state, local and federal level for EEO statements?
