The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the United Mexican States recently signed a national Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that is designed to further strengthen their collaborative efforts to provide immigrant, migrant and other Mexican workers and their employers with guidance, information and access to education about their rights and responsibilities under the laws enforced by the EEOC.
According to the EEOC, this national MOU exemplifies the overall intent of the EEOC and the Mexican Embassy to continue the efforts to assist the Mexican community. Under the national framework of the MOU, the two entities will cooperate to provide outreach and training, as well as assist with enforcement efforts as needed.
EEOC Chair Jacqueline Berrien and Mexican Ambassador Eduardo Medina Mora signed the MOU in English and in Spanish on August 29, 2014. To read the MOU in its entirety, go to http://j.mp/ee-me.
