According to a recent survey from Resume Builder, one in four hiring managers are less likely to move forward with Jewish applicants. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) just released a document containing guidelines on what to do if you face antisemitism at work, which includes the following statement:
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) seeks to prevent and remedy employment discrimination based on religion, including against those who are Jewish. The EEOC Commissioners voted unanimously to issue a resolution calling for an end to violence, hatred, and harassment against Jewish individuals.
We applaud the EEOC for taking action against antisemitism in the workplace, and we stand with the Jewish community in the fight against this hatred. Here are some ways you can help:
- Report any antisemitic content you see online.
- Join or organize a local march or rally against antisemitism.
- Volunteer to clean up antisemitic graffiti.
- Sign a petition or contact your local government official to urge them to take action.
