Gerald Maatman Quoted in Law360
“EEOC Lawsuit Filings Dip As Agency Focuses On Case Quality”


Seyfarth Shaw Labor & Employment partner Gerald Maatman was quoted in a Law360 article on October 5 discussing the drop in the number of lawsuits filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as evidenced by data published by attorneys at the firm. The article also references a blog post co-written by Jerry and Chris DeGroff, which surmises that the decline in filings shows that the agency “plans to push for quality over quantity, with a more sniper-like focus on those cases it has already brought.”
