The Hidden Messages in EEOC’s ‘Official’ Agenda

HR Morning (02/10/12) Tim Gould

In its recently released draft strategic plan, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission indicates that it will maintain its aggressive approach to enforcing workplace discrimination laws despite budget cuts. The EEOC will continue to concentrate on “systemic discrimination,” in which a pattern of hiring or screening procedures could lead to a certain group of employees or applicants being discriminated against, and will take a holistic approach to investigating and litigating complaints, which means employers will need to provide more documentation earlier in the process. Additionally, the EEOC will turn its attention to “targeted, equitable relief” for “all employees and job seekers,” and observers believe relief will mean more than just additional training for supervisors and outside monitoring of employment practices.
