U.S. Sen. Michael Enzi (R-WY) and a coalition of employer representatives have sent separate letters to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the White House Office of Management and Budget to object to the EEOC’s closed-door process prior to likely commission votes April 25 on two enforcement guidances under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans With Disabilities Act.
