About Us


Who we are:

EEOC enforces the federal laws prohibiting job discrimination in both the private and federal sectors--Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act 0f 1990, as amended, Section 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, Title II of the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009. EEOC also provides oversight and coordination of all federal equal employment opportunity regulations, practices and policies.

What we do:

The EEOC Training Institute offers seminars, courses and on-site customer-specific training programs presented by the EEOC experts in enforcing the law. We invite you to review the wealth of knowledge compiled in our products. We believe that discrimination can be prevented if companies, federal agencies and individuals know their legal rights and responsibilities. Our trainers are subject-matter experts and have substantial experience in both enforcing the laws and providing high-quality training. The Institute's educational products contain the technical and legal guidance prepared by EEOC's attorneys, administrative judges, investigators, managers and policy experts.

Programs provided by the EEOC Training Institute and the various manuals, workbooks and materials associated with these programs are made available under the auspices of the EEOC Education, Technical Assistance and Training Revolving Fund Act of 1992. This law authorizes the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to charge reasonable fees to cover the costs of providing specialized, in-depth education, technical assistance and training on EEO laws. These fees offset the costs of the training programs to enable us to keep our products and services very reasonably priced.
