Equal treatment of all employees, as well as equal pay, is regulated and enforced by the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). EEOC prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of age, color, religion, sex or natural origin. Generally, a small, independently owned and operated business with fewer than 15 employees is not subject to these regulations.
