EEOC Renews Partnership to Fight Job Discrimination against Filipinos

Posted Tuesday, April 10, 2018 6:30 am

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will continue working with the Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines on educational efforts to prevent employment discrimination against Philippine nationals and Filipino-Americans.  The decision to continue this effort came late last month when the two entities renewed a national memorandum of understanding (MOU) that was first signed in February of 2015.  The MOU created a partnership between local consulates and EEOC field offices across the country to combat discrimination. 

In a statement released by the EEOC upon renewal of the MOU, Philippine Ambassador to the United States José Manuel G. Romualdez said, "We value this partnership as a vital component of our efforts to assist the over 3.9 million Filipinos and Filipino-Americans in the United States in protecting their rights and facilitating the creation of safer and fairer work environments."

Under the renewed MOU, the agency and embassy will work to provide joint educational sessions and resources to Filipinos and Filipino-Americans.  These sessions will share information, guidance and access to educational resources that participants need to better understand and exercise their workplace rights.  

Feature of the Month:

Federal and State Employment Posters

Employers are required to post both federal and state employment posters in work areas that are conspicuous and accessible to all applicants and employees.
