EEOC Guidance on Title VII, the ADA, and Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking

The EEOC has issued a new fact sheet explaining how employment decisions related to employees who are victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, or stalking might violate Title VII or the ADA. From the fact sheet:

Because [Title VII and the ADA] do not prohibit discrimination against applicants or employees who experience domestic or dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking as such, potential employment discrimination and retaliation against these individuals may be overlooked.  The examples provided in this publication illustrate how Title VII and the ADA may apply to employment situations involving applicants and employees who experience domestic or dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

The examples cover ways that treating victims in a particular way might constitute either disparate treatment, disparate impact, or retaliation. It’s a good summary.
