EEOC to Receive a $14 Million Dollar Increase in Enforcement Budget

Lexology (02/14/12) Christina Stoneburner

President Obama has proposed an increase in the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s 2013 fiscal year budget. The increase in funding is going to be important for employers because the EEOC has announced that its priority will be to continue to litigate systemic cases, which have of late been focused on failure-to-hire cases.

Employers are obligated under federal regulations to maintain applications and any records relating to the application for employment, such as résumé and interview notes, for at least one year after the record is created. Employers should make sure that they have formal record retention policies governing the maintenance and destruction of all records related to personnel decisions.
