When it comes to employee rights and protections, two organizations that frequently come to the forefront are the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC). Although these organizations have somewhat overlapping mandates, their scope, jurisdiction, and processes differ significantly.
The EEOC is a federal agency responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
The TWC is a state agency responsible for overseeing and providing workforce development services in Texas. It is also involved in labor law enforcement, including anti-discrimination laws within the state.
Understanding these similarities and differences is critical for knowing where to turn when faced with workplace harassment. Both agencies offer essential resources and avenues for redress, but the scope and process can vary significantly. Always consult with a legal advisor to determine the best course of action for your specific situation.
