EEOC Guidance

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has created a single, searchable, indexed database that links to all EEOC guidance documents currently in effect, including all in-force sections of the Compliance Manual (volume II), related enforcement and policy guidance that require a Commission vote, and also technical assistance documents.

Information relating solely to the process for claims of federal employees is not included in this database, but is available on our Management Directives and Federal Sector Guidance page.

The EEOC's required Small Business (SBREFA) report is available, but not included in the guidance database.

All guidance documents are listed in the table below. You may also search the full text of all guidance documents for key words or phrases:
