What to Look for in the Coming Year From the EEOC

By Staff Report

Aug. 1, 2013

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking on social media at ACI’s Employment Discrimination Conference in New York City. One of the benefits of speaking at such an event is the ability to hear the other great speakers. Yesterday was no exception.

The conference’s keynote speaker was Constance Barker, one of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s two Republican Commissioners. She was thoughtful and eloquent in sharing her personal opinion on the direction of her Agency.

One of the highlights of her remarks was the sharing of four issues on the Agency’s radar that she expects will appear as formal, written Enforcement Guidance in the coming year.

Needless to say, the EEOC’s activism is not going away (at least between now and 2016). Employers need to keep an close eye on these issues as the develop in the future at the Agency.
