EEOC King of Prussia
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission advocates for employment equality throughout the United States and fights against employment discrimination for employees.
Due to the size of the United States, the EEOC created an umbrella of offices to supervise education and complaint investigation for specific regions, districts, and areas. The EEOC King of Prussia area, as an edge city of Philadelphia, falls under the jurisdiction of the Philadelphia EEOC district office, which oversees Pennsylvania and other states.
