The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) is undergoing significant change, and re-focusing its efforts in pursuing systemic enforcement litigation against companies. As a result, employers are facing heightened scrutiny of their employment practices.  With a renewed focus on the importance of the EEOC's law enforcement functions, the Obama Administration has provided the EEOC with additional funding and an increase in the number of investigators and attorneys. In these circumstances, the EEOC has become a formidable foe for any employer under investigation or sued by the U.S. government.  Please join us for a webinar that will discuss these new developments and best practices for employers confronted with governmental enforcement litigation by the EEOC in 2011. 

Topics include:

  • Overview of the new direction and focus of the EEOC and its investigation program
  • Key rulings in EEOC cases in 2010, and what it means for employers in 2011
  • The EEOC's systemic litigation program and what it means for employers
  • Strategies for dealing with expanded EEOC administrative investigations
  • Strategies for confronting and defeating EEOC pattern or practice lawsuits
  • Negotiating and settling litigation with the EEOC, and how it differs substantially from private party litigation
