EEOC Update
Presented by Mary Dee Allen, Member, Wimberly Lawson Wright Daves & Jones, PLLC

Over the past few years, the EEOC has significantly ramped up its enforcement efforts and published numerous regulations, guidance, letters, Q&A fact sheets, etc., on significant employment law issues. The EEOC’s expects employers to understand and timely implement policies, procedures, and practices addressing these evolving employment law requirements.                          

Given how quickly these changes have occurred, adapting to and complying with such change is a tall order for most employers.  This presentation will focus on the most important EEOC updates, including among other things, the EEOC’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan and related issues.                                                        

The three learning objectives are as follows:

  1. Learn about the EEOC’s current enforcement objectives, as set forth in the 2018-2022 Strategic Plan
  2. Learn about practical ways in which to implement practices and procedures to avoid common pitfalls that lead to EEOC Charges (with a focus on the EEOC’s strategic enforcement initiatives)
  3. Learn about practical ways to help supervisors and managers better understand their role and responsibilities in light of the new SEP.

Schedule: Doors open at 7:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet breakfast begins at 7:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 8:00 am.
