Client Training Seminar Tomorrow – EEOC Claims are on the Rise: You Are at Risk!
The EEOC’s Budget has been increasing steadily over the past few years. Most significantly, the 2016 proposed budget requests almost $374 million, which represents an increase of $8.612 million from the 2015 fiscal year appropriation.
The number one objective listed in the EEOC budget proposal? “Combating employment discrimination through strategic law enforcement.”
The EEOC was created as part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. According to their 2016 Budget, “The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the leading federal law enforcement agency dedicated to stopping and remedying employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information or family medical history.”
As their budget increases, so does their ability to investigate more and more claims. Do you know how to recognize a potential claim in the workplace?
We will be discussing the current legal landscape of the EEOC, what is happening in legal cases, and the types of claims won. We will discuss age discrimination, disability discrimination, the ADA, the FLSA, Wage & Hour, and so much more!
At tomorrow’s training, we will be discussing how HR Strategies is mitigating your risk of an EEOC lawsuit and what to do when an employee raises an issue. It’s not too late to register!
