Visit the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Web site at http://www.eeoc.gov. Pay particular attention to the “Statistics” tab on the “About EEOC” menu. Identify current trends in complaints being filed with the EEOC. Based on your review of the EEOC press releases posted on the site, what appear to be the agency’s current priorities, and how appropriate do you feel these priorities are for the U.S. society?
Discuss how social and cultural norms influence how other nations deal with the issues addressed in US employment laws. Pick 2 of the employment laws discussed in this chapter or covered on the EEOC page. Discuss how other cultures have dealt or might deal with these same issues.
