Fighting Workplace Discrimination and Harassment on a Global Scale


In the U.S., taking a “zero tolerance” stand against illegal workplace discrimination and harassment is an aggressive, tough and compliant approach to assuring equal employment opportunity (EEO). Internationally, though, discrimination and harassment laws vary widely, complicating the anti -discrimination and anti-harassment initiatives that an American multinational might otherwise want to launch across its global operations. Multinationals looking to fight discrimination and harassment on a global scale, to protect both themselves and their employees, need subtlety, nuance, strategy and finesse.

A one-size-fits-all approach does not work. Here we discuss the adjustments in strategy, policy and approach that a U.S. multinational headquarters needs to make when driving a top-down global EEO compliance initiative that would impose international internal rules against workplace discrimination and harassment.
