The number of discrimination charges filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission each year has steadily increased over time. And, for some employers, those charges have resulted in EEOC enforcement suits, including both direct lawsuits filed by the EEOC and intervention actions where the Agency joins in the litigation. This briefing will identify the most common and emerging issues that have received particular focus and interest by the EEOC, and will also explore ways in which employers can effectively respond to and defend against charges of discrimination or other EEOC actions. Employers can learn about:
- EEOC’s “Hot Button Issues”
- Developments in the EEOC’s Strategic Plan
- How to Effectively Defend Against an EEOC Claim
- Recent Litigation Trends Involving the EEOC
