Employers who recruit and hire teens should be aware that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is focusing more on young workers. The agency recently issued a press release describing new anti-discrimination and harassment efforts targeted at students who are entering the workforce. Through its Youth@Work initiative, the EEOC has published a video and supplemental guidelines designed to inform students what situations and actions the EEOC considers discrimination or harassment in the workplace.
