Affirmative action may be required of your company as a condition of entering into a federal contract. The EEOC has no responsibilities for the administration of affirmative action requirements. Affirmative action requirements are administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP).
Employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that want to know more about affirmative action requirements can visit OFCCP's web site.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor. Information on this law may be found at http://www.dol.gov/whd/fmla/.
Complaints filed under the FMLA are handled by the Wage and Hour Division, Employment Standards Administration, U.S. Department of Labor.
The Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act allows small businesses to comment about federal agency enforcement actions to an SBA Ombudsman. For information about this process and how to submit a comment, see Small Business and Agriculture Regulatory Enforcement National Ombudsman.
If you have a question or comment about an EEOC investigation, rule or policy, please let us know, and we will do our best to address your concern or provide assistance. It is EEOC policy to ensure that employers are not targeted for enforcement
actions (such as an investigation) or otherwise penalized for contacting the EEOC or the SBA. The EEOC prohibits retaliation against small businesses because they commented to the SBA Ombudsman about EEOC regulatory or enforcement actions,
requirements or policies.
