Welcome to Youth@Work, the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) website for youth in the workforce. The EEOC's goal is to eliminate illegal discrimination from the workplace for all workers.

This website is designed to teach you about some of your rights and responsibilities as an employee. Use the menu on the left to learn about different types of discrimination affecting young workers and what you can do to help prevent discrimination in the workplace.

Be an informed employee - Know your real world rights and responsibilities!


The Youth@Work website is part of EEOC's Youth@Work program - a national education and outreach campaign to promote equal employment opportunity for America's next generation of workers. In addition to this website, the Youth@Work program includes (1) free outreach events and (2) partnerships with industry, education, and human resource leaders.
