The face of discrimination has changed markedly since the passage of landmark workplace civil rights protections nearly 50 years ago, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These days, the EEOC’s charge inventory consists increasingly of disability, age, and retaliation matters, protected categories that can now cover a majority of the American workforce. The cost of defending EEOC matters has steadily increased, perhaps to the point where employers think they can no longer fight when they’re right. And worse, non-profits have increasingly landed on the EEOC’s radar. This webinar will help participants sort out which EEOC matters pose real risk and which ones do not, based on the EEOC’s recently released 2012-2016 strategic plan. Once armed with the ability to triage risk, employers can make more strategic decisions about when to bear the certain expense of retaining outside counsel or alternatively, when to realize the incredible cost-savings of D-I-Y participation in the EEOC’s administrative process.
