Scheduling an interview is strongly recommended and individuals with appointments will be given priority.

Small Business Information

In March, 1999, the Small Business Initiative was launched as part of EEOC's continuing effort to open the lines of communication and reach out to those groups who have a critical stake in the agency's work. To improve relations between EEOC and small businesses, the agency:

  • Designated a small business liaison in every agency district office.

  • Made available public information material and guidance in a "plain language" format.

  • Revamped the small business information section on EEOC's web site.

  • Developed regional small business outreach plans for each agency field office.
