Gerald Maatman Quoted in Law360
"EEOC Must Disclose Credit Check Info In Kaplan Bias Suit"

05/04/2012

Seyfarth Shaw partner Gerald Maatman was quoted in a Law360 article on April 20, about a Circuit Court ruling that the EEOC must disclose their use of credit checks as part of discovery in the complaint the EEOC is bringing against Kaplan Educational Services.

The ruling marks the first time the EEOC has had to disclose its credit check practices as part of a complaint against an employer. The EEOC argued that its internal practices were irrelevant to their case against Kaplan.
 
"We believe the court ruled appropriately in terms of the relevance of the EEOC's practices and conduct as it relates to the government's allegations in this litigation," Jerry said.
