The EEOC enforces workplace anti-discrimination laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act (which include the requirement for reasonable accommodation and non-discrimination based on disability, and rules about employer medical examinations and inquiries), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, and sex, including pregnancy), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (which prohibits discrimination based on age, 40 or older), and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act.


The United States Department of Labor is responsible for the enforcement of a myriad of federal labor laws including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Recently the agency’s enforcement authorities were expanded to include the Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). The FFCRA requires covered employers to provide eligible employees paid sick leave or emergency family and medical expansion leave for COVID-19 related reasons. The FFCRA’s Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Acts (EFMLEA) became effective on April 1, 2020. On June 3, 2020, outreach representatives from the USDOL Wage and Hour Division will discuss the FFCRA’s paid leave coverage requirements, employee eligibility requirements, qualifying reasons for leave, number of weeks and hours of leave available, and calculation of pay. In the meantime, you can find more information about the Division and the FFCRA on the USDOL Wage and Hour webpage at: .
