The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Wednesday issued a guidance document on how federal laws apply to workers with caregiving responsibilities. The document, titled “Unlawful Disparate Treatment of Workers with Caregiving Responsibilities,” clarifies for employers what practices involving working parents or other caregivers may constitute unlawful disparate treatment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The EEOC said the guidance is a response to a rise in caregiver discrimination claims, which have increased by 400 percent in the last decade. According to the guidance: “This document is not intended to create a new protected category but rather to illustrate circumstances in which stereotyping or other forms of disparate treatment may violate Title VII or the prohibition under the ADA against discrimination based on a worker’s association with an individual with a disability.” The EEOC guidance document is available online.
