Seyfarth Shaw LLP has released its annual report on EEOC legal activities and court rulings, the most definitive source of intelligence that focuses exclusively on EEOC-related litigation.

Please join us for a webinar that will discuss some of the book's top developments and decisions. 
The book's Co-authors Gerald L. Maatman, Jr. and Christopher J. DeGroff, co-chairs of the firm’s Complex Discrimination Litigation practice group, will lead this interactive discussion.

Some substantive trends to be discussed are:

  • The Systemic Initiative - Still Alive and Kicking – Increasing focus on bigger, more complex, and more media-driven cases was prevalent in 2014.
  • Substantive Priorities - ADA, Sex/Pregnancy, and hiring cases remain chart-toppers for the EEOC in FY 2014.
  • Location, Location, Location - The “where” is an important question for EEOC activity, and makes a difference in the types of cases brought and how aggressively they are pursued.
  • EEOC Challenges and What They Mean for Employers - How EEOC setbacks in 2014 may translate to evolving legal tactics in 2015.
  • Where We Go From Here - Our predictions for EEOC enforcement activity in 2015, both substantive and tactical.
