Module Two: Small Business and the EEOC (Lisa M Iodice) For MBA-610 Business Law, Professor Ana Penn According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), an employer must have a certain number of employees in order for the laws of the EEOC to pertain to it ("Coverage," n.d.). If a business, or a private employer, has 15 or more employees who have worked for that particular employer for at least 20 calendar weeks within the current year or the previous year or is engaged in interstate commerce ("Coverage of Business/private Employers," n.d.), the EEOC has the power to enforce most federal discrimination laws. The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) applies to businesses with 20 or more employees who have worked for that particular employer for at least 20 calendar weeks in either the current year, or the preceding year ("Hiring Discrimination Laws," n.d.). The number of employees a business must have in order for the Age Discrimination act to be enforced is 20 ("Get the Facts Series: Small Business Info," n.d.). Even if the EEOC is not able to enforce the laws for a particular business due to the number of employees, state and local laws regarding small business still may be enforced, even if the small business has one or more employees ("Hiring Discrimination Laws," n.d.).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
