The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission handles cases of employers who discriminate against employees for a variety of reasons. Federal law requires that employers do not discriminate against any current or potential employees. When an employee or a group of employees believe they are being discriminated against, they may report it to the EEOC.
Currently, there are a variety of EEOC settlements and lawsuits that are taking place against major companies who have discriminated against their employees. Below are some of the companies that are currently involved in a lawsuit.
Texas Roadhouse: Failed to hire anyone aged 40 or older for jobs in the front of the restaurant
