Making an Employment Decision?

Starting, running and growing a business is a challenge. There are business plans to create, bills to pay, customers to attract, services to provide and profits to maintain, all in a competitive, fast-paced environment.

There are also legal responsibilities to understand. That's where the EEOC comes in. We've developed advice specifically for small businesses to help you understand what to do and what not to do, with the goal of preventing problems from arising in the first place.

What type of decision(s) are you making?

  1. I'm creating employee policies.
  2. I'm training my staff about discrimination.
  3. I'm recruiting, hiring or promoting employees.
  4. I'm setting pay.
  5. I'm conducting performance evaluations.
  6. I need to lay off employees.
  7. I need to discipline or fire an employee.
  8. I need to deny or propose an alternative to an employee's leave request.
