Who We Are

At the EEOC, we’re committed to enforcing Federal laws to help end workplace discrimination in the United States. Our Agency’s employees are leaders in ensuring employees are not discriminated against due to their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older) disability, or genetic information. We investigate charges of discrimination against employees covered by Federal law, and help prevent future discrimination through outreach, education, and technical assistance programs.

The EEOC has locations throughout the Nation, including our Headquarters Office located in Washington, DC, and 53 Field Offices throughout the United States.

Why Join the EEOC?

For the Agency to succeed in its mission, we need talented and driven employees with diverse backgrounds and skills. We count on our employees’ judgment, education, and integrity to help us achieve our goals, and in return, we strive to reward employees with a model workplace where they can continue to advance their career. Our mission to end workplace discrimination sets us apart from other Federal Agencies and is a primary factor in attracting top talent.

The EEOC is a results-oriented Agency, and in 2019, we ranked in the top-half of Mid-Size Agencies. Each year, we work to ensure we are an employer of choice for Federal workers.
