  • Respect cultural and racial differences in the workplace.
  • Be professional in conduct and speech.
  • Refuse to initiate, participate, or condone discrimination and harassment.
  • Avoid race-based or culturally offensive humor or pranks. When in doubt, leave it outside the workplace.
  • Familiarize yourself with the company’s workplace policies and act responsibly.
  • Attend training on EEO principles and learn about your legal rights and responsibilities under the anti-discrimination laws. Also visit for information on discrimination and harassment.
  • Be pro-active. Report incidents of inappropriate, discriminatory, harassing or abusive behavior to your supervisor, Human Resources department, union, or management.
  • If you experience or witness discrimination or harassment contact EEOC or your local human rights commission.
