New ASA Legal Line Video for Members: Recent EEOC Enforcement Actions

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has recently filed lawsuits against staffing agencies that it alleged discriminated against applicants based on race, health status, and other factors. The cases highlight a few general rules that staffing agencies should always keep in mind.

The ASA Legal Line monthly video series features a member of the association’s legal team and addresses critical legal, regulatory, and legislative topics that have direct implications for your business. In the latest installment, meet the association’s new associate general counsel, Shaan Rizvi, Esq. He discusses three recent EEOC enforcement actions against staffing firms and the lessons you can learn to remain in compliance with federal antidiscrimination law.

Watch the latest ASA Legal Line video, then join the conversation on ASA Central. The ASA Legal Line monthly video series is sponsored by Essential StaffCARE, an ASA corporate partner.
