EEO stands for Equal Employment Opportunity, and covers discrimination and anti-discrimination and associated topics such as harassment.

Federal and State EEO laws provide that it is unlawful to discriminate against a person on certain prohibited grounds of discrimination. Discrimination is unlawful in the area of employment, which includes recruitment during employment and termination of employment.

Employers with 100 or more employees are subject to extra legal requirements in relation to promoting and reporting on their practices that support equal opportunity for women in the workplace.
