An EEOC Audit May Be Coming Soon: Are You Prepared?

OnDemand Webinar (98 minutes)

Nearly every business will, at one time or another, receive an EEOC charge of discrimination - make sure you are prepared.

Federal anti-discrimination statutes create a plethora of legal obligations for federal contractors and other private employers. In addition to prohibiting discrimination by employers, federal anti-discrimination laws require employers to exercise due care to take appropriate steps to prevent discrimination, investigate claims of discrimination, take remedial action where necessary. Federal anti-discrimination law also requires certain employers to collect, compile and report certain workforce demographic and pay information. While these responsibilities appear simple in the abstract, these responsibilities become extremely complex in practice because every situation is unique. This topic will help you understand a business's nuanced obligations, so you can establish proper procedures and protocols for your business to meet its obligations and to provide adequate supervision, guidance and training to lower level managers and supervisors. The material will also explain best practices for compiling vital information, documenting efforts undertaken to fulfill obligations, and respond to formal and informal complaints of discrimination.
